Vineyard from above 2

This 15-acre vineyard is located in a unique micro-climate.  As the Rogue River winds through the Southern Oregon valleys, it flows around the Table Rock plateaus and then makes a sweeping bend at the narrowing of the Sams Valley before going through the canyon into Gold Hill.  This sweeping bend is where the alluvial flood plains extend and the vineyard is located.  Being located on these ancient flood plains along the river, the grapes experience slightly cooler days and cold nights during the growing season.  And because of the location at the entrance to the canyon, the vineyard gets a strong west wind that funnels through the canyon most afternoons.  This causes the grape skins to thicken, increasing their pigmentation and creating dark, rich, and complex wines.

Currently there are 11 varietals planted with five under current production.  In current production is Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc.  In upcoming production is Tempranillo, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Orange Muscat, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
