The vineyard is solely dedicated to the variety Cabernet Sauvignon, the king of red wine. The vineyard was planted in 1996 with Bordeaux clones. Currently annual yield is between 150 and 300 cases of wine. The vineyard is meticulously hand maintained by a small staff under the direction of the Schmitz family.
