They spent three years looking for the right property. When they found eight acres in Bennett Valley just a mile from where Russel grew up, they didn’t have to ask any questions, they knew it was where they belonged. The winemaking techniques have remained constant since their first vintage. They inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem, discard every one that doesn’t meet our standards; typically sacrificing six to eight percent of our fruit during this process. From that stage on, every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures. Each of our vineyards imparts their fruit with such pure flavors that we strive to bring all of the components into harmony.
