The Grassi vineyard site was once an ancient riverbed.
It sits on a bench above the valley floor at the bottom
of Soda Canyon Road below the Atlas Peak Appellation.
This region has been known
for fine wines since 1870.
The soil is tempered by cobbles, ranging in size from thumb to cantaloupe. The cobbles keep the soil from being too fertile and provide superb drainage. Our vineyard slopes gently to a center drainage running east to west. We decided to plant on a tight grid to provide excellent density for flavor concentration.
