If you speak with a winemaker long enough you’re bound to hear the old saying that “great wine is made in the vineyard.” While it sounds somewhat simplistic it is absolutely true!
This, in no way diminishes the importance of the winemaker or the role we play in crafting truly unique wines. Instead it underscores the commitment required to insure that we have the very best product to work with.
Typically, wineries of our size contract to purchase fruit on a tonnage basis from an almost endless supply of grape growers. In fact, this is exactly what we did for the early years of our existence.
Wanting to gain even greater control over the grape growing and winemaking process we’ve chosen to take a slightly different approach. Over the last several years we’ve moved towards long-term leases where we actually manage and farm the land ourselves. In two recent cases we even planted the vineyard ourselves.
Ultimately we believe that this level of involvement will result in wines of an even higher quality since we will have control of the process from start to finish. At the end of the day, that’s all any winemaker can ever ask for.
