conditions, allowing longer hang time which promote a more floral aromatic much sought-after by artisan winemakers. The vineyards are an island oasis surrounded by country estates in Napa Valley’s Coombsville region.

  • Picturesque Sarco Creek meanders past the vineyard

Sustainability:

  • Streambank erosion site restored with natural structures: willow revetments and toe rock
  • Varieties selected for Pierce’s Disease resistance
  • Compost is applied to add organic matter and slowly released nutrients
  • Frost protection sprinkler heads use low-flow nozzles for water conservation
