Crew

This crew is hard working, a barrel of fun and highly skilled!

Our staff is committed to the alder springs difference.

In a typical vineyard, you hire temporary crews to come in and prune your vines and bring in the harvest. That's because in a typical vineyard there's not enough work year-round to warrant a full-time staff.

But Alder Springs is not typical. Our unique method of viticulture requires a highly trained crew to work on the ranch. Each cluster of grapes is touched by human hands an average of 13 times throughout the growing season. And our "bonsai" method of careful thinning can't be learned in an afternoon. This is our way of producing some of the finest wine grapes in California.

"If you want to be the best at what you do, you have to create a collection of people who are the best at what they do."Stu Bewley
