Rockyfeller Vineyard

Located south of Oliver, this was an old fruit orchard and as such, the use of bio-dynamic techniques continue to develop the great terroir potential of our Rockyfeller Vineyard.

Planted in 2005, the fruit from this vineyard produces dense inky reds with ripe tannins and highlighted varietal fruit characters. This has resulted in multiple award-winning wines.

Later ripening red grape varietals were chosen for the heavier soils, potential minerality and the higher accumulated heat units found in this vineyard.
