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.
