Green & Red Vineyard directs its farming practices to emphasize the particularity of the grapes from this many faceted piece of earth. Each vineyard receives different amounts of water determined by soil texture, depth and exposure to encourage root depth through varying soil strata. A no till native cover crop is mowed to minimize erosion. In row weeds are controlled mechanically and manually. Crown suckering, selective leaf pulling, and cluster thinning focus intensity in the fruit. Crop loads average 2-3 tons per acre

ZINFANDEL fruit is destemmed, not crushed. 3 days cold soak and 9 days in open top fermenters. Aged 13 months in 50% American oak (20% new) 50% French oak. " ~ Winery notes
