Marley Farm Winery Ewe Hoo 2005Irie. [Greetings] We are a family owned and operated winery in a little slice of Zion, [heaven] in the tranquil Mount Newton Valley. We had always dreamed of owning a winery and in the spring of 2000 our dream was born. Beverly, an ardent winemaker of many years, led the charge in getting us set up.

After some considerable research we planted Pinot Grigio, Ortega and Pinot Noir, as being the best suited varietals for our micro climate, soils and exposure. With the help of family and friends the first vines were planted and we had our first harvest, however limited, in the fall of 2002. Prior to that, our Vintner Eric von Krosigk sourced grapes with similar characteristics, so that we could commence production.

Our resident sheep and geese help us with the weeding and fertilizing, of our 5 acre vineyard. We also have horses, chickens, turkeys, ducks and pigeons. Each year we welcome many visitors to our farm. School children come for a hands-on farming experience, as well as groups of seniors who come for tea in the country a few times each year.

June 29, 2011 We are sorry to report that we are no longer open :( Cheers

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
