Growing Conditions

A beautifully manicured vineyard throughout the season, all pruning, hedging, and mowing or weeding is done to the highest level. Due to a very wet growing season more spraying and leaf thinning was performed. Additionally, all vineyards were walked by the winemaking team multiple times prior to harvest to drop any undesirable fruit


2020 was an exceptional vintage in the Finger Lakes. Warm and even temperatures throughout, with less than average, but well-spaced rainfall resulted in small berries and increased yields across the board. The mild winter preceding the growing season provided the vines with all the necessary “ingredients” to produce a larger crop without sacrificing quality.
