Vineyard History

On the label of the Hop Camp Syrah we have added in quotations, “Gravel Lense,” a very rare soil type referred to as “Cortina.” Over the eons the ancient river bed changed its course, depositing layers of gravel throughout the years at different depths, creating a rare and wonderful alluvial soil layered with these gravel lenses. This type of well drained soil is imperative in the successful production especially of high quality Syrah, as it is and as it controls the vigor of the vines.
