This four-acre vineyard block is at the crest of the knoll that rises to the winery, planted to single clone, Pommard 5. It lies right in the middle of your view, spilling out at your feet, when you are standing at the Tasting Room, looking east.
Hand picked and of a single clone, (Pommard 5) the grapes are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for four to seven days. Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels. Fermentation then goes to completion in the barrels, allowing us to stir the lees as the wine goes through malolactic fermentation.
