Founded in 1978, the winery has some of the most mature vineyards in the region, or - - given the extensive replanting of California vineyards to avoid further damage from the phylloxera louse - - in the country. We have nearly 70 acres planted with these vinifera grape varieties: chardonnay, gewürztraminer, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec, petit verdot, pinot gris and pinot noir.
At Lenz, our philosophy in the vineyard is high-touch. We are interventionists and we intervene, at great cost in time and effort, to micro-manage each vine to ripeness each year. Leaf removal, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, crop reduction, triple catch wires, super-attentive pest and fungus control (our "open canopy" approach keeps fungus problems to a minimum), all combine to add cost (unfortunately) but to ensure fully ripe grapes of the highest quality
Did you know that you can visit The Lenz Winery and our neighbors by Trolley? 12-8pm every Saturday through November 11.
More good news for Lenz Merlot! Thanks Lenn Thompson! http://northforker.com/2017/09/28/know-merlot-look-long-islands-planted-grape/
This is the best place on earth. My parents have been buying Lenz wine for decades (yes it's been around that long, and the wine just gets better). The first time they brought me here, I was greeted with a bowl of fresh water and lots of love. We love everyone at Lenz (but yes we have our favorites...) We love Lenz!!!
