We are committed to producing consistent, high quality, memorable wines through sound viticulture practices, site selection with low yield vineyards and artisan winemaking. Our winemaker, Kendall Mix works closely with our vineyard manager to indentify the best blocks in our Estate Vineyard. Wine lovers can choose between single varietal wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Riesling, or they can challenge their palate with our signature blends g3, Vireo and Sol Duc.
