Following the crowd means getting lost in it. We blaze our own trail, bucking convention in favor of finding a better way.

Our Lake County mountain vineyard estate is situated at an altitude of 2,200 feet above sea level in the mountains of the North Coast of California.  This rugged terrain is characterized by ancient volcanic soils, steep elevation and more recently warmer summers and cooler winters.  This demanding environment creates the perfect conditions to produce wines with exceptional character.
