The challenges of running both a vineyard and a winery simultaneously are very real. Each side of the adventure has its own rhythms and cycles; each demands a different kind of attention to quality. The good news is that we view the double venture as an opportunity to follow a single focus: great wines.
Because we grow many of the grapes used to make our wines, our loyalties are undivided. In the vineyard, we can focus more on wine-grape quality than on high yields, and in the cellar, we know what we can demand and expect from that year's harvest.
