The Story

Lake County’s Red Hills AVA is located in the northern Mayacamas mountain range, along the southwest edge of Clear Lake in Northern California. Vineyard elevations range from 1,350 – 2,600 feet, showcasing soils that are volcanic in origin and characteristically deep, red, and iron-rich that result in grapes with thicker skins and more robust flavors. The Big Valley AVA of Lake County is located along the western edge of Clear Lake at 1400 feet and consists of fertile blocks of clay and loam soils along its valley floor. During summer, these two Lake County AVAs see 90-100 degree daytime temperatures that are moderated by cool afternoon airflows, which are pulled from the Pacific Ocean across the Mayacamas range by the elevation and sheer size of Clear Lake. This unique terroir produces wine with perfect acidity, improved tannin structure and darker, more complex fruit characteristics.

Brand Story

One cool, Spring day in the shadow of Mt. Konocti, a family came to lay out their vineyard using straw to mark the vines. While feasting during their midday lunch they saw a murder of crows dancing around the straw, which made them laugh. Yet, when they looked again, the crows and the straw were gone. The family learned two things that day: be wary of dancing crows, and what to name their vineyard.
