The Home Block is three acres on the Iron Horse estate on an east facing slope, planted to the Calera clone. As the name suggests, it lies adjacent to the home of Iron Horse Co-founder Audrey Sterling. It also happens to be the most sheltered vineyard block on the estate. Limited production – no discounts.

“Home” comes from the 3-acre individual vineyard block next to Audrey and Barry Sterling’s home, which also happens to be the most sheltered vineyard block on the property.
Hand picked from a single three acre block, planted to the Calera clone, the grapes are destemmed into small open-top half ton macro bin fermenters and cold-soaked (using dry ice). Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels.
