Spring Mountain Vineyard's sustainable practices:

  • Over 600 bluebird houses have been built and installed in the vineyards
  • Gobelet vine training - Vines resemble wine goblets
  • Sheep graze to reduce Springtime weeds in vine rows

Decanting tips:

  • Decanting is essential for best enjoyment of wines
  • For young wines, decanting can be as simple as splashing the wine vigorously into a glass water pitcher, then using a funnel to put the wine back into the bottle. This introduces air into the wine and releases aromas and flavors
  • For older more delicate wines, decanting serves two purposes: 1) to separate the wine from the sediment and 2) to aerate and release the bouquet
