“winemaking is old-fashioned”

Welcome to the "Applegate Red Winery" in the Applegate Valley! Not only do we offer fabulous red wines, our vineyard is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon! We have 2 beautiful ponds, miniature donkeys to watch and pet, exotic birds and a wonderful picnic pavilion to bring your picnic basket and enjoy a glass of wine! I only make Red Wines. My approach as a wine grower is to keep it simple. It’s not the old world; it’s just the way it used to be. Choose a great location and back to basic, sustainable farming practices. It’s all about growing wine grapes, and continuing the process into great wines. The vineyard was first planted in 1997 with Mycorrhizal inoculated cuttings selected from local vineyards. As the vines have matured, I now dry farm(without irrigation) naturally and non-chemically. Crop loads are carefully controlled with dry farming, yielding small, intensely flavored berries. There are approximately 20 acres of grapes, with merlot at 40% (8 acres), syrah at 20% (4 acres), cabernet sauvignon at 20% (4 acres) and cabernet franc 20% (4 acres). These percentages also reflect the blend of my signature wine, Applegate Red. My approach to winemaking is old-fashioned. All natural, nothing added, nothing taken away, unfined and unfiltered. It’s all about capturing the essence of the grape. My wines are straight-forward, big, full bodied, robust reds. I hope you enjoy my wines.
