Vineyard History

The Hop Barn Hill Syrah was planted in 1996 on a rocky slope near the old hop barn where we house our wine making facility and tasting room. This wine is a perfect example of the quality of fruit that young vines can produce when they are farmed properly with the right climate and soil conditions. The grapevines are planted meter by 2 meters apart on a acre of land, yielding no more than 3 barrels each vintage. The rows are vertically trellised, with the fruit hanging 26 inches above the ground, promoting sunlight for ripening and air movement between the rows to prevent mildew.
