Borderlands Vineyard is a passion project created by two long-time friends focused on expressing the incredibly unique terroir of the Rocks District of Milton Freewater. Having spent most of their careers growing and making fine wine together, the Borderlands team searched far and wide for the ideal place to grow grapes of distinction.
Having found it amongst the basalt cobbles of the Rocks, they searched for two years, ultimately finding the perfect location to plant. Located in the south central part of this tiny appellation, the Borderlands Vineyard soil is incredibly rocky, and will be planted to 5 different clone/rootstock combinations of Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier. In addition, a multitude of irrigation blocks and training techniques will allow the farming team to grow multiple expressions of distinctive Rocks terroir. The great majority of the vineyard will be planted in 2020.
