When a farm or region finds success with grapes, there is always an economic imperative which says to plant even more. Almost inevitably, in our view, this leads to a decline in the intrinsic quality of the wine since the reality of terroir is more likely to be found in the multitude of micro-habitats that make up a vineyard and its surroundings than in the more general factors of soil types and climatic patterns.

Out own definition of success will be measured in the range of plant diversity we can engender over our 105 acres rather than in our ability to help vineyard prices here rise to levels where only the rich can afford to farm.
