When I first walked through Kimsey vineyard I instantly knew Kimsey was going to be a very special plot of land.
Everything about this vineyard is perfect. Planted in my favorite AVA Ballard Canyon, Kimsey is a high density planting, low, unilateral cordon arms, & VSP trellising. I have never seen such attention to detail. This vineyard is immaculate and is farmed as if each vine is an individual bonsai. Everything is shrunk down in comparison to traditional vineyards, making the fruit dark, & powerful with beautiful personality.
Organic. Planted in 2008. Ballard Canyon, Santa Ynez, CA. Farmers: Ruben Soloranzo, Jeff Newton, Andy Moya of Coastal Vineyard Care Associates. 22.34 acres
