Seven Springs Vineyard is owned by Evening Land Vineyards. I am grateful to lease two blocks of non-irrigated Dijon clones (95 & 76) growing in volcanic basalt soils between 500’-550’ in the South Block. This portion of Seven Springs faces southeast and was planted in 2012. Seven Springs is farmed organically by Jessica Cortell’s Vitis Terra outfit.
