  • Vineyard Details
    • The original vineyard was planted in 1970, and there are still vines from that planting -- Old Vine Zinfandel, and Old Vine Petite Sirah. There have been additional plantings over the years, and we now have 11 different varieties planted. We are primarily growers, and sell about 90% of our wine grapes to other wineries.
