About the winery

With our northern latitude we enjoy longer sunlight hours than Napa Valley does in the key growing months of June through August. Our west-facing orientation combined with our deep desert sand gives us intense daytime heat followed by very cool nights. This exceptional diurnal temperature variation allows the grapes to fully ripen by day and then retain the acidity by night. The result in that our vineyard yields intensely flavorful grapes. With careful irrigation techniques and intensely focused viticulture practices, these are ideal growing conditions for growing the Bordeaux and Rhone varietals we have in our vineyards. In fact, we are so terroir-centric in our thinking, that our winegrower lives right in the middle of our vineyard. He quite literally eats, sleeps and breathes our grapes!
