24K Vineyard

24K-Placeholder-300x198Planted by Curtiss and Cragg Gilbert (of Gilbert Cellars) in 2007, 24K presides just a few miles from Doc Stewart Vineyard, another Gilbert family property. An alfalfa farm in its past life, this vineyard got its name from its location in Mattawa at the corner of 24th and K streets.

Here, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Tempranillo, and Cabernet Franc vines grow in soil subtly finer than nearby vineyards – more loam than sand, and higher in clay content. The year 2012 was the first year where most of the vines in the vineyard have started to show their varietal characteristics.
