North Carolina terroir
The correct vineyard site has a union of environment, climate, soil, rainfall and temperature to form a symbiotic relationship. The Stone Ashe site was discovered on a granite, rocky, steep slope mountainside that was described as 'unsuitable for agricultural development' in western North Carolina. The grapevines respond to changes in elevation, slope, sun exposure, and weather patterns. These attributes persist into the fruit, yielding a balanced crop to produce layered and dense flavor profiles. This granite, rocky slope is the basis that forms the name: Stone Ashe Vineyards. The soil series is Ashe and coupled with the steep slope is “stony ashe" soil.
