Atop the Hill

December 2nd, 2009 by Nicolette Bailey

This picture was taken a couple of months ago just before harvest. It’s a great birds eye view of Youngberg Hill and all the different aspects. The two big green areas are the Jordan Block (upper left) and Natasha Block (lower middle). To the left is the three year old vines of the Aspen Block (pinot gris). In the left corner between the Jordan and Natasha Blocks is the new planting of Pinot noir (Camelot Block). This is a total of 21 acres. Along the upper right side is the horse pasture, below the red barn.

On top of the hill is the bright green area where weddings are held and the adjoining tents for shade. And of course, on top is the lovely Inn overseeing everything.

Olive you.

The 30 Olive trees planted on the East side of the Inn are growing beautifully.
