California Wine, Napa Valley

About Green & Red Vineyard

Green & Red Vineyard, named for its red iron soils veined with green serpentine, is located in the steep hills on the east side of Napa Valley. The planting was started in 1972 on ground originally in vineyards in the 1890's. The vineyards are a small percentage of the 200-acre property, which ranges in elevation from 900 to 2,000 feet. Our separate vineyards are at different elevations with different exposures.

Green & Red Vineyard directs its farming practices to emphasize the particularity of the grapes from this many faceted piece of earth. Each vineyard receives different amounts of water determined by soil texture, depth and exposure encouraging root depth through varying soil strata. A no till native cover crop is mowed minimizing erosion. In row weeds are controlled mechanically and manually. The vines are cropped to 3 tons to the acre. Selective leaf pulling and cluster thinning focus intensity in the fruit.
