Elk Mountain Vineyard

Percheron draft horse at Elk Mountain VineyardThis story, which brings together winegrapes and draft horses, begins with a married couple, the pursuit of a dream, a ranch in Alexander Valley, and four French Percheron horses that needed rescue. It’s the story of Elk Mountain Vineyard. “We purchased the ranch for the horses,” says Dana. As it turned out they had bought a vineyard with thirty acres of Sauvignon Blanc in a world-class region for the varietal. Read more about Elk Mountain Vineyard.

 

Schlies Family / Sandy Bend Vineyard

Schlies Sandy Bend VineyardIn 2006, Chris and Christine Schlies acquired nearly 30 acres (now Sandy Bend Vineyard) in Upper Lake, Calif. They have made a commitment to sustainable winegrape growing. The Sandy Bend Vineyard is located along Middle Creek in Upper Lake. It was previously a walnut orchard. Today it includes 4-1/2 acres of Muscat, about 1/2 – 2/3 acres of Sauvignon Musque, and a little more than 24 acres of Sauvignon Blanc. Read more about the Schlies family.
