Imposing, fortress-like entry gates leave visitors in no doubt that they have entered a very special environment, a sanctuary to the world of wine. An allée of Oak trees frame the drive and guide the visitor to what is, in essence, a parking garden.

The landscape plantings of close to 4,000 trees and shrubs have carefully integrated native species with varietals to enhance the ecological aspects of the grounds. A rose garden at the entrance to the winery beckons to visitors.
