Do your weather dance!
We chose site specific locations for our vineyards in order to produce the ideal growing conditions for each varietal/wine we produce. vineyard orientation, temperature, soil, air movement, are just a few examples of what we look for depending on the wine we seek to produce.
By maintaining and farming small block vineyards, we are able control the variables in the vineyard and allow our wines to express the distinct characteristics of the region. Spotlighting the great mountain districts of the Napa Valley as our grape source, allows the final products to expose the true, bold, tannin-structured wines that Hailstone Vineyards creates.
Hailstone Vineyards is about the atmosphere wine creates: friendship, sophistication, and good conversation over wine and weather. Chris Zazo, Founder
