Viticulture

Manley has its own unique terroir, with very old shale soil that is perfect for red wine production.

Because of this soil, our yield is somewhat lower than that of other cellars in the region as we get smaller berries, but our grapes tend to have thicker skin with a higher concentration of flavor. Our sorting process is three-fold: it starts in the vineyard, where the undeveloped bunches and berries are cut down in the ‘green harvest’. Later the harvested bunches are sorted, leaving only the grapes, which are sorted again to remove small, green berries, as well as any with bird damage.
