Grapes & Bulk Wine
All varieties are intensely and sustainably farmed to create high quality fruit that best represent our region. Our vineyard practices include, but are not limited to:
- deficit irrigation with row by row management
- shoot thinning to 1-2 shoots per position
- seasonal leaf pulling to create dappled sunlight
- fruit thinning to create a consistent fruit zone
- rotating cover crops to naturally introduce nutrients into the soil
- weekly berry sampling once varieties reach 20ºBx
Heringer Estates’ vineyard portfolio includes over 30 different wine grape varieties including Petite Sirah, Tempranillo, Teroldego, Barbera, Primitivo, Mourvedre, Tannat, Dolcetto, Grenache, Malbec, Nebbiolo, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Aglianico, Cabernet Sauvignon, Norton, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Every variety is analyzed throughout the season to create an individual management strategy based on the needs of the variety in the given growing season.
We offer both hand harvest with table sorting and machine harvesting with bins sorting. Our intensive practices create a clean and consistent fruit zone that is easily accessed by hands or machine.
