Gravel Ridge

Gravel Ridge

Gravel Ridge is a 5-acre vineyard on the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz mountains, overlooking the Santa Clara valley.  It is east-facing, on a 35-40 degree slope, and at approximately 900 foot elevation.  The vines were planted in 1979 and 1980, predominantly on AxR rootstock which required replacement in the mid-90's; we have since interplanted new vines to tighten spacing to four feet while converting from cordon to cane pruning. Like all other Cooper-Garrod vineyards, Gravel Ridge is certified organic, unirrigated, and the vines are naturally stressed.
