  • Farming Methods: Our vineyard practices are European inspired. In the non-Mediterranean viticultural areas of Europe, growers experience situations similar to ours here in the mountains of Virginia: diverse soils, erratic weather, and a small scale. They have learned to micro-manage each site according to its needs. Vineyard practices change as the growing season unfolds: hot, wet, dry, cold.
