TWO FOLD — For those who enjoy drinking wine but are not involved in the making of it, it may be difficult to appreciate the many rewards of creating wine from the ground up.
Carey and I have the privilege of being intimately involved in the planting and upbringing of the Sequitur vineyard. We selected vine density, row direction, trellis design and clonal variety. We are able to be totally present during the growing season, from vine pruning in the winter to biodynamic sprays throughout the growing season to leaf canopy management in the summer. We can be active in all aspects of the vineyard’s evolution and make decisions along the way that help create a wine of distinction. This is especially true on a home estate, like Sequitur, where we often take our evening walks and ponder the day to day of our lives.
With the lower half contributing five additional acres and seven new clones of Pinot Noir for the 2015 “Two Fold” (and a small knoll of Chardonnay), the Sequitur vineyard is now in full production.
