Vineyards

The unique style of our wine begins in the vineyards

We source the finest fruit from Calistoga, St. Helena, Rutherford and Oak Knoll for our red varietals. Our Chardonnay comes from Oak Knoll, Carneros, and Russian River Valley.

Each site was selected for a specific varietal character, with many of the vineyards being planted exclusively for us. We've chosen low vigor rootstocks and a selection of clones to give us balanced vines and modest yields, producing maximum flavors.

We're in the vineyards year round, walking the rows during every developmental stage: from pruning to bud break, bloom to set, and veraison to harvest. We learn more every year about each unique vineyard and strive to make better wine as a result. There's also a certain satisfaction in driving a really dirty jeep.
