Vineyard in Temecula, CA
We focus on Rhone varietal wines and blends, but continually look for interesting expressions of additional varieties and styles. To plant and manage our vineyards, we work closely with Southern California’s premier vineyard manager, Ben Drake.
The goal in the vineyard is to grow grapes which show consistent concentration and intensity, year-after-year. We typically plant our vines in 9×5 or 9×6 spaced rows (806 vines/acre or 968 vines/acre). Each vine is limited to 8-12 bunches per year, and farmed for a careful sense of balance. We feel this ensures the development of a genuine sense of place in the flavors and aromas of each vineyard block.
