If you want to make the best wine, find the best fruit. This simple truth is why we're fanatical about grape selection.
We partner closely with growers who are also good friends. They let us walk their vineyards, choosing rows and tiny blocks that yield the very best. The final impact on our wine is enormous.
The secret is: vines in any vineyard differ by quality. "Cherry picking" slants the odds to our favor. No, we can't make thousands of cases doing it this way. That's OK.
