    This near east-side vineyard was originally developed in 2002, under the management of Vineyard Professional Services. Planting is on gentle to moderate slopes, with 8'X6' vine spacing and a vertical shoot positioned trellis system. Unique row orientation (WSW to ENE) reduces fruit exposure to direct sunlight, reducing sunburn.
