The vineyard is the heart and soul of this project; the vineyard as home or hearth. Here is the core, the source from which the life force flows. The vines have labored for years in a kind of vacuum shut off from the world through no fault of their own…or their owners. They have worked together year in and year out under all of Mother Nature’s moods and have yielded nuggets of beauty that become something vinous, wonderful, ethereal.Thanks to some importing pioneers, the Old World of French and Spanish grenache/garnacha has been brought to our doorstep. From my earliest encounters with the wines, to the vines that I now know and work I feel like I have found an almost primal calling.The goal is to share these gems with a global audience.
