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 that make up the hills of our vineyard sites produce wines capable of longevity and complexity.
Our Estate Vineyards currently contain a three acre block of twenty-five year old trunks of Chardonnay clone 76, Cabernet Franc clone 1, and Petit Verdot clone 1. Over the first few seasons of farming, productivity has been reset by removing damaged or dead wood material from the vineyard, establishing new fruiting canes on each of the established veteran trunks, and planting new vine material in vacant sections of the vineyard. Concurrently five acres of vacant established trellis will be replanted.
Two rolling hill tops made of Glenelg soil series that stretch East to West. Vines planted facing south to absorb all of Sun’s rays from dawn to dusk.
