Secret Sampling

Every winemaker we know and trust advised, well urged, us to do our own sampling. "Go walk the vineyards on your own two feet, take samples of the berries and taste!"

Does that make us control freaks? Maybe. But that's the price to produce minimal-intervention wines.


Our vineyard manager (who rocks) has the responsibility of monitoring the fruit, picking samples and testing the ripeness levels. but as harvest quickly approaches we have to get out in the vineyard and taste it ourselves! The numbers never tell the whole story.


To our delight, the clusters are beautiful and taste divine. Nectar of the Gods!


We can't wait for you to experience our first vintage!
