Doe Ridge Estate Vineyard

In 2005 we purchased the Doe Ridge Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton district. Twenty of the 40 planted acres are cultivated using sustainable farming techniques, while the other 20 acres are farmed using the Rudolph Steiner practice of ©BiodynamieIn preparation, the site was ripped to a depth of five feet. Untreated cedar posts and metal stakes enhance microbiological activity of the soil, thereby allowing better expression of the sedimentary Willakenzie soil. The newer Dijon clones of 114, 115, 667 and 777 and the Old World Pommard clones were grafter to devigorating rootstocks 101-14 and Riparia Gloire, and were planted at 2555 vines per acre (1.8m x 1.0m spacing).
