We own 28 acres of vineyard land in what we consider the best AVA in the country: The Rocks District of Milton Freewater. The coarse-grain alluvial sediments found in our soil are similar to France’s famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The wines from the Rocks are distinctive, evocative, and world class. We planted our first three acres to Syrah in 2016. We have also developed long term relationships with some of the best vineyards in the region. At full production, we expect to use our Estate fruit as well as continuing relationships with great vineyards.
Planted in 2007, this 13 acre vineyard in The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA is owned by Steve and Mary Robertson. We currently source Syrah from this vineyard which is internationally certified for sustainable farming practices and as a Salmon Safe vineyard by the International Organization for Biological Control through its US-based affiliate LIVE (Low Input Viticulture & Enology.) Our Veritas Sequitur Estate Syrah is sourced from SJR.
Steve, Brooke and Mary Robertson are committed to single-vineyard, estate-controlled wines utilizing sustainable farming practices as mentioned above. Obsession over balanced soil conditions and native weather patterns is paramount to the SJR growing strategy. Their intense viticultural discipline addresses each block and variety independently, from training form and trellising structures unique to each variety, pruning rigor, nutrient and irrigation strategies - all bring a stunning balance to each vine and the resulting wines.
