Mason Vineyard Dedication

Join us in celebrating the Mason Block, our newest vineyard named for the family who once lived there. In December 2017 we purchased the parcel of land at the base of Breyman Orchards Road from the Mason Family. We have been slowly cultivating the land for vineyard use and will be planting Mt. Eden Pinot Noir later this spring.

On April 13th Paul, Penny and Ken Durant will dedicate our new vineyard, celebrating the legacy of the Mason family. Meet the Masons and toast the occasion with our new release of our 2018 Lark Rosé of Pinot Noir – the first vintage to be made at our new winery. Leave your own legacy by inscribing your name, or the name of a loved one on a plant tag that will live in the Mason Block for years to come. Enjoy live music from 11 – 2 on Saturday. Sit back and enjoy the stunning views from our tasting room all weekend long!
