Our focus is crafting small production vineyards located in the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation growing region. We cultivate and harvest wine grape vines grown in Woodside’s unique microclimate and soil. Our careful management of each stage of the process from growing the wine grapes to bottling produces the highest quality and vintage character year after year. All our wine grapes are handpicked and sorted in small lots to assure minimal processing and gentle handling to produce a premium product.
It’s our belief great wine starts in the vineyard and that a grapevine should be grown in healthy soil using sustainable practices that supports all the nutrient needs of the vine and fruit. We adhere to the premise that the greatest wines are those that reflect their soil, climate and circumstance collectively known as “terroir” or character.
We look at ourselves as custodians of our part of the earth. Every aspect of our winemaking process is carefully controlled during the production of our estate wines from the vine to the bottle.
