What makes this heritage vineyard special? (brief history, interesting anecdotes, etc.):

 

Angela and Felice Pagani came from Italy to Sonoma Valley in the late 1880's and purchased the ranch and planted these vines. It is a very rare vineyard because it has narrow rows, head trained and dry farming. The vineyard used to be plowed by horses before tractors and discs were invented.

Notes and interesting facts on vineyard blocks (rootstock, topography, trellising, irrigation, cover crops, soil depth, orientation, maximum grade, etc.):

 

St George Rootstalk, Head Trained, Dry Farmed, a rare viticulture treasure that has very narrow rows which makes farming very difficult. This vineyard is just like it was in the early 1900ís with no changes, only a few replants.
