"Storybook Mountain's sought-after estate wines are carefully hand-crafted from choice grapes grown in certified organic estate vineyards surrounding the winery. They are aged at least 12 months in the best French, Hungarian and American oak barrels, inside century-old caves dug deep into the mineral-rich volcanic rock underlying the hand-tended vineyard.
The century-old wine caves on the Storybook Mountain Vineyards property were dug by Adam Grimm, who with his brother Jacob, founded the Grimm Vineyards and Wine Vaults. The Grimm brothers came from a German wine producing family which has been involved in this business since 1540 and continues to be to this day." -Winery
