I strive for balance in everything, and that’s truly my approach to winemaking. The majority of grapes we use are estate grown, and we continue to source grapes from across the region from carefully chosen vineyards. I find fruit from different soil profiles create more complex wines and look for specific characteristics to compliment the flavor profile I’m striving to achieve for each wine.
Va Piano Vineyards closely follows guidelines from Vinea, the winegrowers sustainable trust, which provides guidance for environmental, social and economic sustainability.
This holistic approach employs environmentally-friendly and socially responsible viticulture practices that respects the land, conserves natural resources and supports biodiversity. Vinea also promotes responsible relationships with workers, neighbors and the community. By farming responsibly, we will ensure that Va Piano Vineyards will continue to be a premium vineyard for generations.
