Journey From Our Roots
Many have owned this land over the last 140 years. All who have come before us recognized the potential of this land, as we do. The hillside soils of the 1880 Estate Vineyard are known as Konocti stony clay loam. It’s a low nutrient, porous soil, which is perfect for growing premium grapes. Western facing with a 22% slope, our vineyards are well placed to produce grapes with a distinct profile – concentrated, structured and rich in color with balanced acidity. As custodians of this unique property, Burgess Cellars continues the tradition of tending the land, the vines and continuing to produce award winning wines.
