Vineyard Notes

Our Albariño comes from the Wheelhouse Vineyard located in the North Delta Region of the Clarksburg Appellation. Planted in 2009, the 5.6 acre block enjoys highly organic soil and cool Delta breezes that are prefect for this aromatic varietal. The cool mornings and evenings with warm days make it an ideal growing location for Albariño – the afternoon sun builds the fruity characteristics, while the chill of the evening helps retain crisp flavors.

Production Notes

The 2023 vintage has been a reminder of the grit required to be a winegrape grower. The season commenced with record breaking rainfall from a system of ‘atmospheric rivers’ that put pressure on the nearby river and slough systems. Our vines were able to stretch out in the soil and regain their strength from previous drought years. Our teams carefully managed each vineyard to tamp down threats that were the result of a wet start and their efforts were recognized with the quality of the 2023 vintage. Summer came in softly, with long days and cooler temperatures – excellent conditions for a long growing season. Harvest started in earnest in early September and finished nearly two months later on November 13th. We’re proud to bring you the 2023 vintage, which jumps out of the glass with superb fruit quality that showcases the soul of every team involved in the making of these wines.


Other Notes

CLARKSBURG AVA – Located on the Sacramento River in the heart of the Delta, the Clarksburg AVA has a profound maritime influence. Cool mornings give way to warm afternoons and temperatures quickly cool again in the evenings. With land at or below sea level, the fertile soil attracts and holds nutrients and water which calls for constant monitoring.
