Established in the 1960s from pre-prohibition site - original vine cuttings, the Nova Vineyards is on the benchland of Mou7nt Konocti in Lake County at an altitude of 1,500 feet. The head-trained vines grow in well-drained, deep alluvial volcanic-based soils and have been organically farmed since planting. The crop receives just one watering during the growing season and is thinned to approximately four tons per acre. These practices encourage the vines to develop smaller berries with complex, more concentrated flavors.
