Though barely three miles from our Paderewski Vineyard, the pH level at Catapult Vineyard is in the high 5’s. A nice complement to the dirt over at “Rewski”. This pH difference, coupled with the cooler mesoclimate at Catapult allows for different flavor profiles from the fruit produced.
Staying true to our goals, the vineyard was planted after copious research of the soils and land exposures. We carefully matched not only the variety and the rootstock with the soil and the orientation of the hillside, but also the clone within the variety. Today, seven grape varieties — Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenanche, Tempranillo, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Viognier – are planted to this plot of land that was born to be a vineyard.
