Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from the winery’s Lodi vineyards, and in particular, the Mokelumne River sub-appellation, with a small amount coming from just north of the River, in the Jahant sub-appellation. The winery practices sustainable viticulture practices such as crop reduction, leaf removal, use of organic materials and drip irrigation to improve the quality of the grapes and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed, as well as the placement of owl and wood duck boxes around the vineyards and ponds to help preserve the surrounding habitats.
