Why dry farm?

Dry farming sets us apart from our neighbors; the only water our vines receive is the rainwater that percolates into and is stored by the soil. We believe that dry farming produces grapes (and ultimately wine) characterized by balanced, concentrated, and unique flavors. We also believe that dry farmed vines reflect the terroir more precisely than irrigated vines.

Dry farming is great for the environment too.  By not irrigating our vines, we’ll save millions of gallons of water over the life of the vineyard.  While dry farming grapevines requires quite a bit of additional labor to manage each vine’s unique canopy, the results are more than worth the effort.

Winemaker

Celebrated California wine-maker William Knuttel has concentrated on ultra-premium winemaking for nearly four decades. His philosophy has long been to make a wide range of wines in various styles for each vintage.This wealth of experience has led directly to his adherence to traditional winemaking practices, which leads to balanced, elegant wines that pair well with food and have excellent aging potential — the hallmarks of classic wine.

Wine

Our portfolio consists of boutique Estate dry-farmed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Rosé. Each vintage is produced in extremely limited quantities and is allocated primarily to our Club Members. We are committed to sustainability in both our Estate Vineyard and throughout the winemaking process.
