Daedalus Distributor Retreat Day 2: Daedalus Estate Vineyard

For the final vineyard on the tour, we hiked the hill up the Estate to see the baby Daedalus vines and Lucy, the vineyard dog. These vines, about 7 acres of densely planted Pinot Noir, went into the ground last July. They were planted with a unique staking system which allows for mechanized in-row cultivation and keeps us from ever having to spray for weeds. We farm our property all organically because organic farming produces better grapes. There are plans to plant 3 more acres and build the winery on Red Hills Road.
