Farmed by the talented¬†Ulises Valdez, Campbell Ranch is considered a maritime vineyard much like Hirsch & McDougall Ranch.¬† It’s elevation (much like the prior two sites) allows for a tighter diurnal shift of daytime till nighttime temperatures which allows us to pick earlier and maintain freshness along with lower alcohol levels.¬† The low-vigor site is contracted by the acre and farmed to our specific requirements which include two canes and either one or two spurs, minimal leafing & little to no irrigation.
