The Beauty Of The Land
The main vineyard is less than a mile away from the tasting room at an elevation of 1300 ft. The property is 45 acres with woods and bordered by Grassy Creek which separates the property from our neighbor winery Grassy Creek on the east and south borders. There are 6 acres of grapes, growing two red varietals, Merlot and Arandell. Arandell is a French American hybrid grape also known as a baby Cabernet Sauvignon, which produces a deeply colored wine with intense flavor. Chardonnay and Traminette are the white varietals. Traminette is aIso a French American hybrid which closely resembles a guwurtztraminer, producing a bright wine with a floral nose. The hybrid varietals are very climate hearty and known for their disease resistance, and tend to adapt quickly to our environment. In addition there is an acre of plum and pear trees for fruit to sample at the tasting room.
An additional half acre of Cabernet Franc is grown at the tasting room property.
