Farm & Vineyard

Our 365 acre farm has been in the family for three generations. The twelve acre vineyard is managed by Brandon Hoy using natural and minimal intervention practices.

GROWING NATURAL

The existing crow farm lands were nitrogen rich with organic matter and have helped to prepare optimal soils for our vineyard. We practice minimal intervention in the vineyard which helps us maintain the quality of our grapes for winemaking.
