Blaufränkisch was planted in the summer of 2006 in our lower north vineyards for a total of .07 acres and ten rows of grapes. MOFFETT BLOCK was chosen as a single vineyard designation to honor Bill Moffett who first planted wine-growing grapes on this farm back in the 1970’s. Additional plantings were made on the South farm in spring of 2014 to double our production for the future.
