Description

Martin Estate encompasses roughly twelve acres. Eight of these acres were planted in 1996 with 17,000 vines. Seven acres of tightly spaced Cabernet Sauvignon, Clones 4, 6 and 337 surround the winery and, at the south end of the property, one acre of Merlot. Split redwood stakes and non-galvanized wire were used as the trellising system to avoid the reflection of new metal, retaining the feel of a 19th century vineyard.

The soils of the property are Pleasanton Loam and Yolo Loam. Both of these are well drained soils on alluvial fans, allowing the roots of the vines to go deep into the ground in search of water, thus requiring little irrigation. The rootstocks chosen are especially well suited for the terrain. The Estate's vineyard is farmed using organic methods.
