“Adler Deutsch Vineyard sits on the northwest corner of the West Rutherford Bench. The soil is regarded as some of the best in the Napa Valley for cultivating the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Its loamy, well-drained topography is ideal for this grape varietal.”
— Jim Barbour, Viticulturist
Located on the edge of the acclaimed West Rutherford Bench, the soils of Adler Deutsch Vineyard are composed of bale loam, rounded gravel and cobbled stones, making it ideal growing ground for Bordeaux varietals.
The vineyard is planted in three blocks and meticulously farmed by Jim Barbour and the team at Barbour Vineyards to maintain the health of the vines and preserve the integrity of the land.
Adler Deutsch Vineyard is farmed with long-term sustainability in mind and is part of an on-going effort to maintain and enhance the quality of air, soil and water. Sustainable practices include water conservation, reduced-risk fungicides and a proprietary blend of cover crops. The irrigation system divides it into four separate blocks to preserve water resources and to better address the needs of individual vines. Nitrogen-fixing legumes are planted annually to restore the soil’s nutrients and to stimulate better entomology, eliminating the need for synthetic fertilizers.
