The fifteen acre Antiquum Vineyard is located in the southern part of the Willamette Valley AVA at 800' elevation. The soils are well draining silty clay loam over a sandstone base that is the remnant of an ancient seafloor. The vines are dry farmed and managed in an old world style utilizing draft horses and sheep.

Hand picked on September 17th, the medium size clusters were of pristine quality with ripe flavors and required no sorting. The fruit was fermented in 1 ½ ton small lot containers, the must was basket pressed and the wine spent ten months élevage in neutral French oak.

OUR LABEL
The woodcut design on the front comes from a small book on wine purchased at a garage sale years ago during our travels. Only recently during the process of producing the label did we learn of some of the history around the chosen 'Harvesting' woodcut.

The woodcut is one in a series found in the Liber Ruralium Commodorum of Petrus De Crescentiis ca. 1305, and first published in Latin in 1471. The artist of the illuminations is identified as Andrea da Firenze who was active in Rome during Pius II. One of these early manuscripts, which was rebound for Pope Pius VI (Giovan Angelo Braschi, Pope 1775-1799), was in the collection of Robert Hoe (Arabella's great great grandfather) and sold at Sotheby's in 1912.

The pattern on the back is a reworking of a Maori carving pattern that represents movement. It is used in all areas of New Zealand and stands for continuity towards our evolving future.
