Proprietors Fred & Sally Schweiger have owned this land since the early 1960s. It’s not uncommon for visitors to meet them, along with their son, Andy, our winemaker.
Our style of winemaking comes from Fred’s passionate artisan vineyard methods, concentrated quality wine production and unique winemaking style reflective of our terroir. Due to meticulous viticulture practices, the dark red wines produced from our mountain fruit have intense flavors.
We are located in the Spring Mountain District Appellation on land with a distinctive micro-climate; we do not get the thick layer of fog in the mornings as the valley floor vineyards do. This helps our fruit ripen with more sunlight. The complexity of flavors in our wines are attributed in part by the four types of volcanic soil on our property. We dry-farm our vines, which allows our grapevine roots to grow 25 feet deep, where the vines have access to water and the nutrients they need to produce quality grapes.
