Everyone said it was too cold to grow grapes in Potter Valley, but this stubborn Irishman was out to prove everyone wrong.
It is the quality of the grapes that puts Blue Quail ahead of other wines. Having experimented, we've established blocks, or separate growing environments for different grapes in the vineyards. Head pruned and trellised, irrigated and dry farmed, planted next to the Russian River and on rocky hillside slopes. Blue Quail's grapes are not grown in one way, but rather are thoughtful expressions of terroir, the marriage of grape to place, grown for desired varietal correctness.
