South Africa

The hilly terrain and climate of the Western Cape is renowned as an incredible grape-growing region. Here, the intense heat is balanced by a mountainous landscape and the moderating influences of the Southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans making it ideal for growing grapes such as Pinotage, Marselan and Chenin Blanc.


The warm, flat region of Central Valley, Chilé offers an ideal climate for grape growing. The warmth allows grapes such as Chardonnay to ripen easily which will impart intense fruit flavors into the finished wine. Also, the Pacific Ocean has a cooling influence on the vineyards, which helps grapes such as Pinot Grigio retain acidity and purity of their fruit characteristics.


Our Malbec hails from the Argentine foothills of Tupungato, one of the highest peaks in the Andes Mountains, in the Mendoza region. The vineyard’s exceptionally high altitude enjoys sun filled days and cool, windy nights. This produces thicker skins, resulting in grapes of deep color and character, layered dark fruit, and medium tannins.


The vineyard sites of California experience nearly 365 days of sunlight. This coupled with the varied aspects from mountains, valley floors, dense fog and ocean influences provide a climate ideal for growing a large assortment of grapes. Our grapes are sourced from multiple locations including the Lodi, AVA (American Viticulture Area), the Suisun Valley AVA and Paso Robles AVA.

New Jersey


We partner with growers and winemakers within our local region in southeastern New Jersey, the Outer Coastal Plain AVA. This region in characterized by well-drained sandy soils and a relatively long growing season. The climate is moderated by the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay making it an ideal area for growing both Vitis Vinifera and hybrid grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Traminette and Chambourcin.
