Freedom 75 Vineyard

Freedom 75 Vineyard


Freedom 75

Our newest vineyard site was planted in the Spring of 2011 and is located directly across from our home block of Rattlesnake Vineyard.

The land was restructured to optimize air flow and soil moisture. Prior to planting the vines, rye grass was planted to anchor the soil, overhead sprinklers were set up to water the cover crop and cattle grazed for a year to establish healthy bacteria in the soil. As with all our vineyards, indigenous plants of all varieties have emerged to thrive with the rye grass, thereby increasing the organic matter on the site.
