Varieties and Clones

The choice of variety and clone can make the difference between an average vineyard and an outstanding one. Careful consideration must be given to climate, soil type, drainage and estimated harvest dates, not to mention your ultimate goal in terms of buyer or desired wine. We are pleased to offer you a broad selection to choose from and would be more than happy to help you determine the optimal choices for your vineyard projects.
