At Boeschen Vineyards we understand both the importance of growing world-class grapes and the advantages that come with managing our own vineyards. Our wines are made entirely from fruit grown on our 11-acre estate vineyard, so we take great pride in our farming, knowing each cluster could end up in a bottle with our name on it.
We grow six varieties of grapes for blending purposes, but two-thirds of the vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. For such little acreage, the vineyard possesses a wonderful variety of soil types, topographical features and micro-climates, none better for growing good Cabernet than the south-facing hillside Terraces blocks. Those vineyard terraces are carved through dense layers of black, volcanic obsidian that help to stress the vines while giving us clues about the people and forces that originally shaped our valley.
