Estate Vineyards

We believe having control over our grapes is crucial to maintaining the high quality and character of our wines. We have spent years identifying and planting vineyard properties, selecting extraordinary sites based on soils, microclimates and topography. Each vineyard block is managed with an attention to detail that encompasses technology — including the use of NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) aerial photos — as well as good, old-fashioned feet on the ground. This micro-farming informs all of our vineyard planning and practices, meaning that the choice of varietal, rootstock and clone as well as decisions concerning pruning, canopy management, irrigation and harvest are done on a vine-by-vine basis.
