Vineyard NOTES

In 1979 Larry Hyde began planting 72 acres of what would become the Hyde Vineyard in Carneros, Napa Valley. His passion, hard work, persistence and forward thinking resulted in planting new clones of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot experimenting with row directions. All this led to his extensive collection that is still being documented today by the Foundation Plant Services at the University of California, Davis.
