Farming the vines according to the proper grade and with a site and variety specific farm plan helps ensure optimum vine balance and high quality wines.
Cover crops serve many important functions, including prevention of soil erosion and providing an inviting habitat for beneficial insects.
By providing habitat for owls we help keep our gopher populations down. We also make use of a falconer to keep pest birds away from our ripening grapes.
Through painstaking site selection, pre-plant analysis, proper rootstock and Clonal selections and regulated irrigation our vineyards have the moderated vigor required for great wines.
By installing “leaky” fences we can keep neighbor’s cattle out of our vineyards, while opening a wildlife corridor, providing food, water and habitat for numerous native species.
