Even before the URGENCY vineyard was planted, Clay Shannon’s instincts told him that the blend of volcanic soils would produce full, rich flavors and the long, warm summer days would ripen the grapes perfectly. This special piece of dirt creates wines that do not require long aging, the lush flavors show well upon their release.
Nestled deep in our vineyard stood a 100 year old shed called the “Ye Old Buck Shack”. The rustic charm of this old building was the inspiration for this collection.
