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
It’s the perfect day to taste some wine. Come warm up at Lenz and pick up some holiday cheer! Open until 5pm today!
We’re onsite at Andrews Family Farm today bringing holiday cheers, and of course wine! Come enjoy a tasting by the fire. We have holiday wrapped wines for purchase, gift baskets and were taking orders for personalized bottles. Come take a look; 12-4pm
