The Vineyard Map at HJW. It is a fixture in our tasting room experience (illuminated and hanging on the walls), and a conversation starter to say the least! There are so many factors that contribute to the character of a vineyard and this map strives to present them in an educational and aesthetically pleasing way. We often joke, that each time we look at the map, we discover another feature or tidbit of information. Location, elevation, proximity to the lake, vine spacing, varietal, clonal selection, planting orientation, soil type, and acreage are all presented in a conception designed by architect and Cornell University professor, Alexandr Mergold of the firm Austin & Mergold.
