Vineyard The vineyard sits at an elevation of 2000 feet. Shake Ridge has perhaps best been described as a small village of vineyards rather than one contiguous site. Planted throughout 40 acres of rolling hills, each little parcel has a different slope, aspect and soil profile creating many different microclimates within the same vineyard.
Soil Volcanic, decomposed granite, quartz.
Viticulture Vineyards are farmed using organic methods.
