Valley.  Pinot noir clones in the vineyard are 114, 115 and 777. Combined with the Jory soil type and ideal weather, these clones produce a rich, complex pinot noir that is dense in color and high in tannin.
   Pinot gris clones are 146 and 152, which are quite similar to one another. They produce a slightly fruity but dry white wine that is excellent with fruits and cheeses.

between vines is 5 feet. This is a greater amount of space than one normally sees in local vineyards.
