Crimson Lane Vineyard
 
The first thing we noticed about this land was the rocks--large basalt cobblestones. The stones lay as proof of Mother Nature's erosion of the nearby Blue Mountains. The soil is made of coarse-grain alluvial sediments consisting mainly of these basalt cobblestones. This soil, similar to the soils of France's famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape, yields wines of great struture and individuality.
 
Currently, this land is planted to apples and cherries. We feel that this soil and microclimate are ideal for Syrah. But, we like to play. In addition to Syrah, we will also look to plant Viognier, Roussanne, and Grenache.
 
Oh, and maybe some Mourvedre, Tempranillo, and Malbec.
 
And maybe some Cab and Cab Franc.
 
Sounds like a party...
 
Other Vineyard Sources
 
Les Collines Vineyard
 
First planted in 2000, Les Collines Vineyard has gained a reputation as a source for fantastic fruit. We have leased 2.5 acres of Block 19 Syrah--some of the oldest vines in this vineyard. Our inaugural Syrah will be made with fruit primarily from this vineyard.
 
Seven Hills Vineyard
 
With plantings dating back to 1981, this vineyard has been providing fruit to many wineries for quite some time. For our inaugural vintage, we will be using some Syrah from this famed vineyard.
