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.
We grow incredible mountain fruit at a great value for our customers and we’re passionate about preserving the land.
Project Ovis is the transformation of our 1,000-acre Lake County California mountain vineyard estate into a completely sustainable, regenerative organic farming system.It is our reimagining of viticulture and winemaking to address the effects of climate change.Our efforts are both holistic and dynamic, combining carbon sequestering practices with permaculture initiatives and energy efficiency applications. We are pioneering change and setting industry standards in an ongoing effort to improve the way we treat the planet and its swiftly dwindling resources.
Have you seen the articles (such as this one from @tastingtable) suggesting that red wine in moderation might lower your risk of contracting COVID? According to W. Blake Gray in @winesearcher, in a recent major British study, "The risk of getting Covid-19 was 10-17 percent lower for people who drink red wine. Unlike with other alcoholic beverages, the effect did not significantly diminish for people until they got above 14 glasses per week. This is good news!" We'll drink to that! 🍷

The rustic tannins in some red wines, specifically those grown in mountain vineyards, have already been linked to health benefits via their polyphenols and antioxidants.
