Viticulture

We are steadfast in our commitment to maximizing the potential of our vineyard, as achieved through skillful and sustainable cultivation.

From the start, we have entrusted Kevin Wilkinson of Coastal Vineyard Care with the management and progressive redevelopment of our estate vineyard. He and his team care take several top vineyard estates in Edna Valley and Paso Robles including the Stone Corral Vineyard, immediately adjacent to our own.  His experience in our local terroir has brought detailed practical knowledge of the soil and climate conditions specific to our site.  

Together, we pursue an unyielding standard of quality in the vineyard. Only the finest vineyard blocks are designated for the production of Center of Effort wines. These blocks are farmed on a per-vine basis, accounting for everything from sun exposure to soil variables.

Natural cover crops, real-time moisture monitoring, minimal inputs and other sustainable practices are also essential to our vision of respectful vineyard stewardship.
