Due to the unique geographical properties of the vineyard, the vintners have to take extra care to harvest the grapes at full ripeness. This is because the vineyard is on a steep 35-degree incline which doesn’t allow for heavy machinery. That means going out and harvesting all the grapes by hand! Can you think of other vineyards that put such care into their work? The grapes are also fermented separately in small batches with traditional techniques in order to achieve the maximum flavor of the wines. They even take care to only select certain French Oak barrels, in order to really capture that special flavor.
The unique tasting experience offers an in-depth look into the terroir, the discussion of the history of the vineyard, and their winemaking techniques. Guests also will receive a sampling of the current release. Tastings are by appointment and last approximately 90 minutes, at around $75 per guest. If you’re interested, you can visit their website and book an appointment for a tasting today.
