APOGÉE N. APOGEE (FIG.) ZENITH, CULMINATION, HIGHEST POINT
I invite you to visit Apogee. Fly in to the vineyard in late summer 2017, see the riddling process and meet Olli the labrador. Taste the 2014 Deluxe Vintage Brut, a single-vineyard,"traditional method" sparkling wine under the 160 year-old oak tree near the homestead.
