We are blessed with a wonderful cool climate, full sunny days in the summer and cold, wet days in the winter … a great location to ‘grow’ wine.

Situated at the entrance to the Coal River Valley and in one of the driest parts of the state, irrigation is essential and the entire vineyard is drip irrigated. The soil is mostly sandy loam over a mudstone base providing excellent drainage throughout the vineyard. A modified Lyre (U-shaped) trellis system is used in conjunction with vertical shoot positioning, while the latest rows have been developed using a simple VSP trellis.
