Planted in 2007, the Button & Turkovich Estate Vineyard is home to 20 acres of winegrapes surrounded by rich agricultural land and soaked in the warm California sun.
Expanses of golden rolling hills are dotted with patches of green — oak trees and vineyards — and are tucked in against the Vaca Mountains. The great gravelly-clay-loam soils, along with warm days and temperate nights, allow the vines to produce excellent grapes. The Winters area features a unique convergence: where the delta breezes cease, they are met by cool winds sweeping down off Lake Berryessa, allowing for a long, mild growing season.
The vineyard’s ideal conditions make for rich fruit exhibiting bright, flavorful characteristics in the resulting wines.
Rhone varieties Syrah and Viognier have proven themselves to be the stars of the show, along with the Spanish varietal Tempranillo and California’s workhorse, Petite Sirah. Grenache and Mourvedre are also showing immense potential.
