Vineyards

In 2011 we planted our first 'experimental' vineyard (.1 hector or 1/4 acre) of Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir), clone 115 grape vines and realized our first vintage in 2013. This vineyard is near the house at 400 meters with a very high density of 11,500 vines per hector.

In 2016, we prepared the land and made a one hector (2.5 acres) vineyard near the top of the property at about 500 meters (1600 feet). In 2018 we expanded the vineyard by a bit more than one hector for a total of about 2.2 hectors, all Pinot Noir grape vines. Both vineyards are planted at a density of 7,000 vines per hector. The vines are special selection field blend, clone 115 and clone 777. We are currently working on our 7th vintage.
