Our Vineyard

Wine grown and made with the plan­et in mind.

Sustainable and environmentally conscientious with organic practice

Our estate vine­yard is locat­ed in the Wil­low Creek Dis­trict of Paso Rob­les. West fac­ing hill­sides and chalky, rocky soil make for a chal­leng­ing but ide­al grape grow­ing environment. 

We farm our vine­yard in ways that will keep it sus­tain­ably pro­duc­tive for gen­er­a­tions. Weed knives, herds of sheep in ear­ly spring, and hand hoe­ing are just a few of the weed abate­ment meth­ods we use instead of tox­ic her­bi­cide sprays. In an effort to avoid intro­duc­ing chem­i­cals into the envi­ron­ment, we imple­ment owl box­es and squir­rel traps as our pri­ma­ry rodent con­trol. The lime­stone soils absorb and retain win­ter rains allow­ing for min­i­mal irrigation.

A variety of varietals

A winemaker’s vineyard

Plant­ed in 2019, our vine­yard fea­tures six vari­etals of grapes select­ed for their blend­ing prop­er­ties and fla­vor pro­files. The high­ly effi­cient irri­ga­tion sys­tem runs off a large hold­ing tank to min­i­mize direct pump­ing of ground water and makes use of grav­i­ty to irri­gate vines.

Break Ground

Pur­chased in ear­ly 2018, Josh designed and cleared the vine­yard space for soil prepa­ra­tion and plant­i­ng. The lime­stone soil is chock full of rocks, good for vine grow­ing but tough on farm equipment.
