  • Background

    Our five-acre Rosemary’s Block vineyard is the yin to Mickey’s yang. Just a stone’s throw from Mickey’s, Rosemary’s rows enjoy east-west orientation, thus benefiting from full sun throughout the day, with evening shade provided by a nearby stand of oak trees. This distinct exposure produces grapes marked by red fruit characteristics and effervescent citrus. Our Rosemary’s Block vineyard is known for producing high-definition, high-intensity fruit with magnificent focus and delicate extraction.
