Our Hye Estate Vineyard where the tasting room also resides, has 6 acres of vines and Petit Verdot makes up about 1 acre. Petit Verdot gets its name for its small size of berries. It does have a unique characteristic not found in most grape varieties, in that it produces more than 2 clusters per shoot. With thick skins and natural acidity, it brings powerful tannins, color, and freshness to your glass.
