OUR EMPHASIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON VINEYARD WORK.
Every grape that has ever been used in the making of our wine has come from our vineyard. Our commitment to 100% Estate grown grapes is a reflection of our belief that wine should express its varietal, vintage, region and soil in which it is grown. Importantly, this means we are able to control our own farming practices and the impact we have on our land, our neighbors and the Earth.
WINE THOUGHTFULLY MADE IS THE TRUEST REFLECTION OF PLACE AND TIME
The term Responsible Viticulture was born out of the idea that the future of our land, our neighbors and the Earth are just as important as anything we do today. Whereas there exists other terms to describe methods of farming, Responsible Viticulture describes the lifestyle we have chosen and our recognition that we are simply, and importantly, stewards of this great farm. We have a responsibility to give back to the land which has given so much to us and protect the Lake which offers our vines and crop protection from the elements. This philosophy has taken on more and more meaning as our family has grown, and is so important to us that we have chosen to print it on every bottle of wine we have ever produced.
