The Lane Vineyard Block Series show true varietal character and the influence of the terroir of The Lane Vineyard. Block numbers indicate the patch within the vineyard where the fruit is grown, as do the "Google Earth" coordinates on each label. Minimum intervention winemaking allows the vineyard to do the talking. The Block Series are stylish, fresh, fruit driven wines with a true sense of place.

Vintage

Cool temperatures and below average rainfall throughout spring resulted in even flowering and a healthy fruit set, with some varieties requiring crop thinning. A warm to mild summer with few heat spikes provided ideal ripening conditions and minimal disease pressure. A warm period in April helped late varieties ripen fully, and ensured an outstanding vintage.
