– In 2004, my partner Jens Korberg and I, decided to start looking for a property to plant a vineyard. Excited by the possiblities in Prince Edward County, we started to make a number of trips there. Quickly, we fell in love with the history and beautiful countryside. We finally found a small property that was 90% plantable. The soil, drainage, heat and steep southern exposure gave it great potential to make fantastic pinot noir and cabernet franc. Jens and I believe we are stewards of the land we own, entrusted to us during our lifetimes. As such, The Old Third is farmed using a reasoned approach to organic viticulture. Our goal is to reduce as much as possible the chemicals applied to our land to improve and maximize its health. We believe that the finest wines are made with this philosophy.
