I love Briar Ridge Vineyards’ commitment to exploration. The world is constantly changing, the climate is changing, and growing conditions are changing. Therefore, our practice must also evolve with them. The fact that Jaclyn Davis and her family continue to push these boundaries and allow me to do the same at the winery is inspiring and fills me with a desire to help build the brand to a new evolutionary stage. We don’t spend a lot of time in other vineyards so trusting people in their role is important and we are lucky enough to work with excellent farmers and vineyard managers who know their land and do it right. I am here to discuss how vineyard management can be evolved to determine grape maturity based on flavor and chemistry, and be more closely involved at harvest, if desired.
