Why dry farm?

Dry farming sets our vineyard apart from those around us; our vines rely solely on rainwater absorbed and retained by the earth. This method yields grapes (and ultimately wine) with harmonious, robust, and unique character. Moreover, we believe vines cultivated through dry farming more accurately reflect the essence of our terroir.

Dry farming is also beneficial for the environment. By avoiding vine irrigation, we save millions of gallons of water throughout the vineyard’s lifespan. Managing each vine’s individual canopy does demand extra labor, but the exceptional wines we produce justifies this additional effort.

Renowned California vintner William Knuttel has dedicated over forty years to crafting ultra-premium wines. His enduring approach involves creating diverse wines in multiple styles every vintage. This extensive expertise directly influences his commitment to time-honored winemaking techniques, resulting in harmonious, refined wines that complement food and boast remarkable aging capacity — the trademarks of classic wine.


Our portfolio features a range of Estate dry-farmed wines, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Rosé. Each is produced in limited quantities, and is primarily offered to our Club Members. We emphasize sustainability in our Estate Vineyard, and throughout winemaking process.
