About Juggernaut Winery
Hillside vineyards have less access to water, with the rockier soil also holding fewer nutrients. These conditions stress the vines, resulting in the production of a fraction of the fruit of most vineyards. The harsh environment causes the vines to struggle, yielding fewer clusters and smaller berry size. The result is berries that are loaded with rich, ripe, intensely concentrated flavors and complexity.
Our grapes are grown in challenging conditions, where true grit and determination yield spectacular results.
Determined Hillside Cabernet vines struggle to find purchase on steep, rocky slopes, where well-draining soils inspire roots to burrow deep in search of life-sustaining moisture. Steadfast Pinot Noir vines endure, unwavering, in inhospitable conditions, battered by wind and fog, struggling to utilize every precious hour of warmth and sunlight over a long growing season.
Juggernaut wines harness the power of nature to produce robust, compelling wines as expressive as the powerful alpha-predators adorning our labels.
