The northernmost section of the Piedmont Plateau, along the Atlantic Fall Line, lies in the farmland outside of the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. These hills have provided agricultural staples for centuries. For the past twenty-five years, varieties of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chambourcin, and Chardonnay have demonstrated that the well-draining, balanced soils and complex substrata of metamorphic rocks produce wines capable of longevity and complexity.
Our Estate Vineyards currently contain a three acre bock of twenty-five year old trunks of Chardonnay clone 76, Cabernet Franc clone 1, and Petit Verdot clone 1. During the 2022 growing season new fruiting canes were trained up onto the existing trellis to reset productivity of these seasoned vineyards. In the spring of 2023 new vines of the same variety will be interplanted among these veteran vines to bring the crop density back up to approximately 1800 vines per acre. Following 2023 five acres of vacant established trellis will be replanted focusing on growing wines of exceptional longevity.
