Vineyard Notes

Our 2.88 acres of Syrah planted in 2014, is one of the largest plantings in New York of this early ripening, vigorous variety from the northern Rhône. The site we chose to cultivate this variety is on the furthest down-slope of our original 1805 farm. The site is well drained with deep Howard series soils. This vineyard is steep and protected from strong spring winds, which also gives good air drainage in the winter and summer, protecting the site from both high and low temperatures

Pairings

Hearty meals, red meat and heavy tomato based pastas such as beef brasato.
