WINEMAKING

At the heart of our winemaking philosophy is the firm belief that truly exceptional wine originates in the vineyard. We approach our craft with meticulous care, hand-harvesting our grapes to guarantee optimal ripeness. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our use of all-natural pesticides and predator deterrents, ensuring a harmonious ecosystem within the vineyard.

Countless hours are spent traversing the vines, meticulously inspecting each cluster to ensure they reach their peak of flavor and maturity. This hands-on approach is fundamental to our dedication to producing wines of the highest quality. To broaden the spectrum of our offerings, we extend our reach beyond our estate, selecting only the finest grapes from diverse regions across the state.

Once harvested, our wines undergo a transformative aging process. We carefully age them in a selection of French, American, and Eastern European oak barrels. Each type of barrel imparts its unique characteristics, contributing to the complexity and depth of our wines. This careful balance of craftsmanship, dedication to the vineyard, and a commitment to quality allows us to present our guests with an extraordinary selection of wines that showcase the very best of California’s diverse terroir.

VINEYARDS

Wolfe Heights boasts an expansive 82-acre estate nestled in the heart of Vineyard, California. Our vineyard features 2 acres of Petite Sirah, 3 acres of Tempranillo, 7 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12 acres of olive trees. As an ever-expanding estate, we have ongoing plans for planting additional varietals. Our inaugural vines were planted in 2015, leading to our first harvest in 2019.

Sustainability is a core principle at Wolfe Heights. We employ cover crops to combat pests, prevent soil erosion, and enhance soil fertility. These cover crops, acting as natural fertilizers, enrich the soil with nitrogen. With six distinct soil types ranging from Cobbles to Sandy Loam, our vineyard benefits from diverse and fertile grounds.

Situated 50 feet higher than the surrounding area, our vineyard enjoys a unique advantage. The elevated position harnesses the cooling effect of the Delta Breeze at night, imparting enhanced flavors to the grapes and, ultimately, our wines. This meticulous approach to cultivation and the utilization of natural elements underscore our commitment to crafting exceptional wines with a nod to sustainability.
