Grapes: Muscat

Vineyard: Encompassed by a large organic walnut orchard, the wire-trained, CCOF certified-organic fruit of Davis Drive were planted about twenty years ago in the heart of Lake County AVA. Most of Lake County experiences a vast diurnal-temperature fluctuation, with intense sunshine providing warm days and afternoon winds that cool down the area, often resulting in 50-degree diurnal cycles.
