This west facing, dry farmed vineyard is located just south of the town of Kenwood, CA. It consistently produces wonderfully dark, almost blueberry like fruit. With cool mornings that lead to hot afternoons, we take extra care to manage the canopy for optimal flavors, while protecting the fruit from too much sun exposure that can wreck havoc during the early stages of berry formation and subsequent ripening
