The historic appearance of the property belies the innovation happening in the vineyard. Larry Bettinelli replanted the vineyards and invented a new trellis system that optimizes sun and air exposure for the clusters. His family is embracing new cutting edge technology that lets us track photosynthesis activity, vine stress levels, and phenolic evolution throughout the year. They grow six clones of Cab at Bettinelli Sleeping Lady Vineyard, and we work together on each year’s final blend. Wines from here are elegant and feminine. Floral notes, graphite, bright red fruits, finesse.
