That's what we want our grapes to be, as well as versed in the three C's of viticulture - color, concentration and character.
Farming for generations
Shake Ridge grapes are tended with constant attention, yet minimal and judicious intervention. The vines are given limited inputs, but are not asked to carry more crop than they can handle, encouraging strong, healthy plants, that produce wines of the highest quality.
The entire ranch is farmed sustainably – using just enough organic fertilizer and compost to support natural growth; utilizing cover crops for both nutrition and erosion control, attacking pests with natural predators and netting before harvest to prevent birds from making a feast of the delectable grapes.
