The Herdsman CAB…flying in soon!

by: Lane Giguiere

There is a long tradition of ranching in the Dunnigan Hills. The sheep farmers valued the open, expansive grasslands on gravelly soils where grazing was plentiful, and the Giguiere family has been tied to that tradition since 1852. Now, the 6th generation is creating their own tradition- using sheep, not for wool or food, but to improve the health of the soil, the health of the vines, and the quality of the grapes.

The Herdsman is centered on the heritage Cabernet clones planted in our vineyard. These gravelly soils produce the most expansive, intensely flavored fruit in the appellation. The flying sheep is an homage to the Giguiere family ranching tradition that launched their life of farming in the Dunnigan Hills.
