Our philosophy in wine making is based upon first using the finest grapes possible. From there, we employ methods that minimally impact the grapes, as excess handling can detract from their quality. These methods include the use of gravity to move the grapes into the destemmer and fermenters, employing smaller open top fermenters, hand punch downs of the must and again using gravity (as opposed to must pumps) to move the must into the press. We focus on providing a sterile environment during all phases of the process and employ a government certified laboratory for most of our analytical testing.
We believe that this attention to detail, as well as keeping our focus on very limited production wines, provides us a very high quality hand crafted wine that along with our moderate prices distinguishes us from many of our larger competitors.
