To begin, the most important aspect of winemaking is to focus on the details - sorting, gentle processing & tight temperature control.
Sourcing, growing & managing the best fruit in the vineyard is where it all begins. It is an attention to detail that results in our grapes being given the best treatment. Brian Dickerson, our vineyard manager, has resulted in higher quality fruit from Bohemia Manor Farm.
Managing all of our fermentations is the key to optimizing exceptional components from the fruit. Whether it is the aromatics of a Sauvignon Blanc, the mid-palate weight of the Grüner Veltliner or the structure of the Cabernet Franc, in each of these situations there are things we manipulate that change what we are focusing on. The simplistic dichotomy is cold verse hot & fruit verse weight/mid-palate.
We are leading the charge on the East Coast to make ripe, balanced, mature wines that showcase the best of what can be done from our region. We are also sourcing from some of the best in the area & from California (Stagecoach and Beckstoffer), to bring wines of exceptional quality to the Bohemia Manor Farm.
Philosophically, we are moving towards a vineyard designate program and ultimately would like to see our wines be made without filtration. We would love to give you a tour of our Winery & production facility when you're on the farm, just call ahead to schedule a tour!
