About the vineyard:
Sun Mountain Vineyard is located in the Apple Hill area of the Sierra foothills. The vineyard management practices comply with sustainable standards and is personally managed. Pest management recommendations are provided by a registered Pest Control Advisor on a regular basis. Vine soil moisture status is periodically sampled down to 4 feet at various sites in the vineyard to guide deficit irrigation at a specific interval during the season. Petiole samples are routinely submitted for analysis to assess nutrition status and remedial practices introduced where necessary. Yield is closely managed and limited to approximately 3 tons per acre. The wine from these grapes has received favorable reviews and awarded Double Gold and Best of Show at wine competition.
