Vineyards

Our Estate currently has 10 acres of Zinfandel, Primitivo, Durif, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.  We farm our vineyards in a bio-dynamic manner using no pesticides or chemicals other than wetable sulfur, which is approved for organic grape growing. No-till agriculture with animals for weed control and nutrient application is used in our estate vineyards.

We source from our Estate and other select vineyards in the Sierra Foothill Appellation that employ sustainable farming methods. We don’t subscribe to corrupt commercial certifications. We believe in “source” verification, in which you as the consumer verify us. This is an easy task for the consumer as 99% of our wines are sold directly out of the wineries front door.

All grapes are harvested at the optimum time using taste as the main criteria. We never use cost and convenience in our growing and harvesting decisions. Again, quality wine is truly made in the vineyard. Our wine making approach is best described as vineyard centric. We truly believe that quality wine is made in the vineyard. There is no fixing a bad grape in the cellar.
