Pristine Fruit, Peak Ripeness
As twenty-first century viticulturists, we combine science with pragmatic, environmentally sound farming. Blending modern technology with practical experience to collect and analyze data, we create a unique management and financial plan for each vineyard, maximizing the potential of the site. We have the capability to develop property on a vine-by-vine basis and seek to identify distinctive blocks within a vineyard property for luxury wine products. We grow the highest quality wine grapes and deliver pristine fruit at peak ripeness to our winery customers.

"Working with the Bevill team makes our life as a grower/client of theirs easy. Duff really listens to our vision of the vineyard and hears what we say. He offers advice and suggestions and keeps us up-to-date on new farming practices. Duff is very helpful introducing the grower to those wineries buying grapes. All of our grapes are under contract."
Sandy Comstock - Comstock Vineyards
The most impressive quality that Duff and his team provide is their intelligent approach to farming vineyards, which includes the utmost integrity and protection of the environment. In the years that Duff has managed our vineyards, he has done an admirable job of preventing the spread of problems, increasing the quality of our grapes, and planting new and more productive vineyards. At the same time, Duff has an innate ability to provide the high quality of grapes that the wineries in Sonoma county desire."
