  1. 1. Viticultural and Enological Services
  2. 2. Our tendency is to be interested in something that is growing in the garden, not in the bare soil itself. But if you want to have a good harvest, the most important thing is to make the soil rich and cultivate it well. Shunryu Suzuki

  4. 4.  Soil and tissue analysis is the basis of sound fertilizer recommendations that result in higher fruit quality.  Pest and disease severity is reduced when vines are in a healthy physiological condition.  Proper and appropriate fertilization results in wine grapes and wines that have a deeper character and expression of the site.  Cultural practices performed throughout the growing season are equally important. An emphasis on the biological cycles and relationships occurring between the plants and soil constituents is the basis of “terroir”.  Site selection, as well as rootstock /scion selections, also play a significant part in the expression of distinctive regional flavor characteristics. The primary objective is to fine-tune the above to achieve the highest quality wine grapes possible for a particular site.

  6. 6.  Achieving a full expression of fruit flavors and the distinctiveness of regional differences is the goal of winemaking.  The utilization of appropriate fermentation techniques will result in wines showing their full potential . Blending strategies as well as barrel selection will further enhance the complete wine.  Also included in our services are practical suggestions on purchasing affordable equipment as well as packaging designs that make sense.  Winery design considerations can be made to facilitate the winemaking process and avoid unnecessary overruns.

  10. 10.  “Our vines have flourished under his care and the quality of our grapes has continued to improve.”- Bob & Linda Klein (Klein Family Vineyard)  “In the early 1990’s I had the opportunity to begin working with Deny Dudzik; walking vineyards, asking and answering questions, to get the winemaker’s perspective on what they wanted and what needed to be accomplished in the vineyard. He knew wine quality, I knew soils, pests and diseases, and we both knew that soil quality is paramount. For over 15 years we combined our knowledge to produce many fine wines, using sustainable or organic methods. There are many who know viticulture, and many who know winemaking, but few with Deny’s knowledge of both. ’’- Gregg Young, CPAg
