The Vines – The current owners started the vineyard renovations with Aaron Shin of Round Valley Ranches in 2018 with final planting of grenache, sangiovese, and mourvedre grapes commencing in 2020. They completely removed the old vineyard and reconditioned the land to improve the soil integrity. They replaced the trellis and plant selection, and designed the vineyard to achieve optimal quality from the ground up. The trellis is a VSP (vertical shoot position) system which is common in parts of Europe as well as the North Coast. This system allows manipulation of the canopy in order to attain optimal sunlight exposure, shade at the correct time of day and ultimately peak color, tanin and ripeness. They selected non-production style root stalks and clones which will produce a less vigorous canopy and yield fewer yet more intense clusters of fruit ideal for premium wines. They proudly farm the vineyard using the Sustainable Practices certified through the Lodi Rules. This means that they monitor water usage, use fewer and lower toxicity pesticides, preserve and enhance the soil as well as the natural habitat surrounding the vineyard and ensure that employees are treated fairly.
The Area – Less than 10 minutes to historic downtown of Lodi featuring farm to table restaurants, tasting rooms and compelling charm, you’ll love the slower pace and won’t miss the hustle and bustle of city life. You can also enjoy the revival of Sacramento, the “Farm to Fork” capital of the US. Abundant recreational activities include wine tasting at one of the 100 local wineries, bicycling, hiking, horseback riding and golfing just 5 minutes away at the 100 year old Woodbridge Golf Club. Popular wine industry events, cultural and musical events throughout the year, the center of “farm-to-table” cuisine, art galleries and boutique shopping make this a very special place for those fortunate enough to call it home.
