Winemaking Philosophy

Our winemaking approach is founded upon three core values: ensuring that the character of the vineyard is vividly expressed in the wine; preserving and honoring true varietal character in each wine; and achieving natural quality without a reliance on heavy-handed winemaking techniques.

Following is how we cultivate these values from ground to glass:

Vineyard Expression

All of our fruit comes from our family-owned vineyards, with the vast majority coming from our estate Margarita Vineyard. We take great care to preserve and accentuate Margarita Vineyard’s distinctive fruit character throughout the winemaking process, resulting in wines that express a true sense of place.

Varietal Authenticity

Margarita Vineyard’s cool growing conditions create a long growing season that maintains intrinsic varietal character. We believe that varietal character is vital to the quality and enjoyment of our wines, and we avoid heavy-handed winemaking methods that might interfere with it.

Natural Quality

Our sustainably farmed Margarita Vineyard spans five soil zones and numerous microclimates, enabling us to mix and match different blocks to build natural depth into the wines. We do not rely heavily on fining and other cellar manipulations to achieve a desired outcome. Rather, we blend varied blocks to craft wines with dimension and complexity.
