Our Primitivo is produced in small quantities and offered on a limited basis.
This single acre vineyard lies atop a river canyon enjoying constant breezes and full sun exposure. Planted on a medium slope of decomposed granite soil, the vineyard is tended similarly to our heritage Zinfandel vines, head-pruned, dry-farmed and aggressively thinned. This traditional vineyard practice keeps yields low and intensifies fruit characteristics. The Primitivo vineyard is also one of the organic vineyards on the property.
