The Tofanelli family has been farming their 40 Acre estate right in the heart of Calistoga since 1929. This completely organic and dry farmed estate boasts rows of head trained vines that drape over the center of the plant. The soil is tilled 6 inches every year which acts as an insulating later and keeps the deeper soil moist in the hot summer months. The sunny days and cool nights of Calistoga contribute to the optimal ripening conditions for Grenache grapes, allowing them to develop their characteristic ripe fruit flavors and retain good acidity.
