CrauforD Wine Co.

Farming is a very personal experience.  With that comes many different opinions and categories; conventional, organic, sustainable, bio-dynamic to name a few.  Our farming philosophy is to make choices that are always supportive of the land.  Our dry climate in Napa Valley allows us to make minimal organic inputs into the vineyard, a real terroir expression in the wines.  Our spring Mountain soils are a mix of sedimentary and volcanic rock, a blend of Feltin, Millsholm and Boomer soil profiles. Primarily well drained with lots of rock. The vineyard begins at 1450 feet elevation with a  south-east exposure and slope of 12%. The 4.2 acre vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon ( clones: 337, See, 7 ) and Cabernet Franc ( clone: ? a friend ).  Along our creek is the first documented spring of the Spring Mountain AVA, with two, bountiful, hand dug wells.  There are many giant Redwoods, Napa Oaks, and Pine trees. Add chickens, peacocks, Meyer Lemons, Mission Fig, wildflowers, pumpkins, gourds and Heritage vegetables, and you start to get the picture.  Farming is our everyday life.  We live in the vineyards.  We are proud to grow organic fruit without herbicides and insecticides as we simply don't need them.  And not to sound cliche, but a balance is the goal.  Balance the soil to rootstocks, irrigation, vigor.  Balance nutrients and canopy for fruit set and quality.  Balance fruit level to vigor to maintain fruitfulness in the vineyard.  We work every day to bring our customers the best fruit possible.  That's our philosophy.
