This team effort culminated in the reincarnation of one of the original wines in the Mark Ryan lineup: Water Witch. After carefully selecting the top performing blocks in the 13.6-acre vineyard, we are very excited with the results. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is lightly pressed to barrel.
In 2012, we partnered with Quintessence Vineyards to plant a 13.6-acre block on the south slope of Red Mountain. No expense was spared in the design and development of the site. We worked hand-in-hand with the Quintessence Vineyard team to transform the 13.6-acre site into a world-class vineyard through meticulous site selection, variety and clone selection, and vine density and orientation.
