Part of the Monticello Wine Trail, our ideal vineyard site is comprised of mostly Virginia red clay and quartz soils. Our temperate climate further benefits from a cooling mountain breeze that helps our grapes achieve fresh and more precise flavors. The mountains also shield the vineyard from some of the rain and extreme weather of locations even just a few miles away. Within the vineyards, the grapes are affected by varied microclimates, the different aspects and slopes of the hills, and their relative exposure to the sun. We’ve planted different grape varieties in specific parcels, known as blocks, to take advantage of and to express our varied terroir.
