We work primarily with two Arizona vineyards for our wines, The Pronghorn Vineyard in Sonoita, AZ & the Cimarron Vineyard near Willcox, AZ.
The Pronghorn Vineyard was planted in the Sonoita AVA near Elgin, AZ by the Bostocks in 2004. At 4,800 ft. elevation, the vineyard has grown quickly over the years with 15 acres (of the 40 acres available) planted to grapevines. Our goal with this vineyard was to produce a distinctive red wine that would be unique to this spot on the planet. With that in mind, the vineyard is planted with a constantly evolving constellation of varieties we hope will come together to produce a deliciously balanced wine that tastes uniquely of this area. Currently there are significant plantings of Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Viognier, Aglianico, Roussanne, Marsanne, Malvasia & Grenache Blanc.
The Cimarron Vineyard was planted by Oregon wine pioneer Dick Erath in 2005. At 4,300 ft. elevation, the vineyard has 38 acres planted to grapevines. Expertly managed by Oregon veteran Juan Alba, the vineyard provides super high quality fruit for most of our wines. Also planted to a constantly evolving constellation of varieties, this vineyard has major plantings of Tempranillo, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Viognier & Picpoul Blanc. There are also many smaller blocks of experimental plantings of well known & esoteric varieties from Spain, Italy & France.
