– Moose mountain vineyards
Established in 2008, Moose Mountain Vineyards was planted with love by family and friends. From 5 acres to 14, MMV has seen steady growth over the years. Our team is focused on the organic production of exceptional grape varietals and maintaining the vines in a more traditional way. The vineyard is managed “by hand” from the pruning in February to the fruit drop and leaf pull in late spring and early summer. The harvest is performed by a team of dedicated family and friends that have a total investment in the selection of the best fruit for the crush.
The volcanic hillside offers a terrior that is quite different from the alluvial valley floor. The foothills promote poor soils, combined with the influences of appropriate reinforcements of the coastal layer and elevation.
The first vines were planted in 2008 consisting of the 6 red Bordeaux varietals. Since 2012 the vineyard has continued to expand now, consisting of 13,000 vines. This includes 20 different varietals originating from many famous wine regions throughout the world. These varietals are:
Merlot – Cabernet Sauvignon – Cabernet Franc – Petit Verdot – Petit Sirah – Malbec – Tannat – Syrah – Carménère – Mourvèdre – Graciano – Aglianico – Alicante Bouschet – Grenache – Barolo – Negroamaro – Nero d´Avola – Tempranillo – Nebbiolo – Lagrein – Colombard.
Every vintage yields exciting new possibilities for the production of “right-bank” and “left-bank” styled wines. In addition, the other varietals permit some new possibilities for blends that are bold and adventurous. All wines are made with careful extraction for a full-bodied flavor that has depth and complexity that can easily surpass the traditional California “fruit-bomb” styled wines.
