Renaissance Vineyards, USA
Below are the details for Renaissance Vineyards, USA.
|Winery Name:||Renaissance Vineyards, USA
|Other Details:||Planted from 1975-82, our vines are on their own roots, without any rootstock. This is unusual for California. Varieties are planted in carefully selected microclimates and soil combinations to maximize their potential. We follow, work, and harvest over 85 such individual variety/vineyard-site combinations. We practice organic approaches to viticulture, keeping the environment in mind. Severe cane pruning limits our yields to under 2 tons per acre on average. (In comparison, Napa Valley averages about 4 tons per acre.)
The Renaissance Vineyard combines two traits, which are usually considered mutually exclusive. The multiple microclimates and soil variations allow for an astonishing range of grape varieties in a single vineyard, and pure varietal character is consistently evident throughout the Renaissance product line. Yet this unique terroir also leaves its unmistakeable signature in each of our wines. Regardless of the variety, all tend to be concentrated, intensely flavored, with pure fruit aromas, a tell-tale spicy/minerally side, and a powerful structure. Consequently, Renaissance red wines have outstanding aging potential, and acquire complexity and harmony over the course of many years in the bottle.
