Francville Vineyard

Francville Vineyard

At Cooper-Garrod, our Cabernet Franc vines date back to the original stock brought to our “Chaine d’Or” region by French settler and grape expert Pierre C. Pourroy around the turn of the century.  The Pourroy property became Congress Springs Winery, as it was known until recent changes of ownership.  Cuttings for our vines came from Congress Springs and were planted in 1985 on west-facing slopes at the western edge of our property.  The vineyard elevation varies from 970 to 1040 feet.
