The cool Carneros climate allows our grapes to remain on the vine longer, achieving high acidity and ultimate flavor development. We tend our vines diligently and wait for the exact moment when full maturation has been reached before harvesting.
Minimal interference is needed during crushing. Fruit is handled gently during the wine making process and we select the best yeast strains to carry out the fermentation. New French and American oak barrels do not overpower the fruit, yet provide the perfect environment for aging.
The grapes speak for themselves, expressing full flavor, resulting in wines that are crisp, with a hint of the tropics and depth of character.
As a family of growers, we are so proud of our grapes; we wish we could bottle them right from the vine.
