Founders Christopher Medlock James and Ames Morison have created a sustainable, ethical operation that exudes a small town, almost utopian feel. Their team farms the vineyards organically, avoiding the use of insecticides, herbicides, or chemical toxins, and solar power provides the energy to keep the 330-plus acre spread running (80 percent of which they keep wild to allow for the natural growth of local trees and other botanicals). The best part is the outdoor communal area, with its farm tables situated amidst several kitchen gardens, is often a core for community and visitor gatherings (especially on Saturdays, when they make pizzas in the gorgeous copper wood-fired grill).
