From the web site: "After a lifetime spent making wine in Sonoma County, in 2001 we were fortunate to find Amapola Creek, an ideal location to produce small quantities of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. Our ranch consists of 120 acres along the sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains adjacent to the highly-acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyard. These red, iron-oxide soils have yielded superb wines for well over a century. We have planted approximately 20 acres of organically and sustainably farmed estate vines to continue in that tradition.

Each vine is literally hand-tended by Sonoma Valley’s leading organic viticulturist, Phil Coturri and his crew. Phil has taught us to view our vineyards as living organisms and to approach winegrowing with the concept of balance. Achieving balance is not only critical to the health of the vines, but essential to realizing our goal of making wines that are an expression of their terroir. And, as Phil puts it, "You can’t express the soil if it’s dead."
