Wine Making

Our primary goal is to let the vineyards speak in each bottle of wine we produce—spotlighting the unique impression of landscape, soil and climate here where our grapes were grown. All of our wines are made from the vineyards on our ranch. We believe that old chestnut - "Our wines are made in the vineyard". The vineyard is the base, the foundation that allows a winemaker to build a wine. Without a strong foundation, a wine has virtually no chance of being great tasting.

We use old world methods to handcraft unique vineyard designated wines. 

What can be described as minimalistic in the winery, we attempt to make tasty wine that makes good food taste better consumed together. Our flavorful wines are designed to be part of a meal and complement food, whether it’s a casual meal at home or a dinner at a top restaurant.

Barrels of wine

Our red wines are aged for 15 - 21 months in French oak. Our white wines are fermented in neutral French oak and aged for a few months.

Grape crushing

Our wines are made in small lots with the reds punched down by hand.  

Orange grape skins

We have been making skin-contact or "orange" wines from our Semillon grapes and using wild, indigenous yeast.

Bottling wine

In the winery we are hands-on and give each bottle every bit of TLC possible - truly artisanal.
