About the vineyard:
Sumu Kaw Vineyards is located in the Pleasant Valley area of El Dorado County at an elevation of 3000 feet. Our first vines were planted in 1994 with the remainder in 1997. We have completed all the requirements for Fish Friendly Farms and though we are not certified organic, we have been using organic sprays and have stopped use of herbicides in the last few years. Most of our acreage is planted in Rhone varietals, but we also have Nebbiolo, Zinfandel seven varieties of port grapes, a few of which are listed below.
