Sustainability speaks to the vision we have of our job as winegrowers.
Sustainability speaks to the vision we have of our job as winegrowers. The fruit for outstanding wines can only come from beautiful origins. It is our commitment to respect the land, the vineyard, and the wines that come from our site as things of great beauty, to be carefully and lovingly tended.
Zenith Vineyard's soil structure is comprised of sedimentary soils from the Missoula floods 14,000 years ago, laid down on a bed of ancient sea floor that is hundreds of feet thick. The soils generally fall into the silty-clay category. We farm 83 acres of vines – 65 acres of Pinot Noir; 7 acres of Pinot Gris; 3 acres of Chardonnay; 3 acres of Tempranillo; 3 acres of Auxerrois and one acre of Pinot Blanc. We harvested 268 tons in 2018 and crush for our own label as well as sell fruit to 24 other wineries, ten of which make Zenith Vineyard designated wines.
Our vineyard is certified sustainable by LIVE and has been for over 10 years.
