Our magnificent estate vineyard was planted in 1986 with Seyval Blanc and is located at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon at an elevation of 5,350 feet above sea level. The early morning sunlight is unobscured by the mountains due to the location of the vineyard at the mouth of the canyon, allowing the vines to enjoy the sunlight from early morning to late in the evening. The soils of the vineyard are composed of glacial deposits, which combined with the gentle slope provide excellent drainage for the for the vines’ root systems. During the ripening stage, the high altitude provides the necessary low nighttime temperature which allows the grapes to ripen slowly. This enables the vines to produce fully matured, well balanced grapes, therefore retaining their natural varietal fruit flavors and natural acidity.
