The unobstructed eastern exposure allows the morning sun to penetrate the vines early. Mt. Konocti, to the west, plays the defining factor in terroir, providing a once chaparral covered slope, now home to the vineyard. During the longest days of summer, Mt. Konocti creates an extended evening shadow, protecting the fruit from the harsh western sun. The hottest days are always followed by cool nights, with temperature swings of 40 – 50 degrees. The volcanic geology has forged gravelly, red clay loam. The soil has been further improved through years of organic practices including compost additions, routine cover cropping, manuring, and application of minerals. The site and cultural practices allow for the production of up to 20 tons of consistently high-quality fruit. The vineyard has been organically certified for 10 years. with possibilities for 4 to 5 acres of additional planting
The barn is an 1800 sq. ft. custom straw bale structure divided into a large kitchen space, second-story private room and wine production or event space. Centered in the concrete slab of the wine productions space, is a winery trough drain. The structure is constructed with a standing-seam steel roof, with large overhangs. Hand-made metal medieval doors lead into both kitchen and winery spaces.
