The beautiful 10 acre property was first planted with 1 acre of Grenache and 1 acre of Viognier in 2009. Focusing on Rhône varietals, this summer will see 2-3 more acres under vine with Syrah, Mourvèdre and more Grenache.
With 3,000 vines per acre in the two original blocks, this high density vineyard produces quality fruit destined for premier cuvées in the Santa Ynez valley.
