Description

The original winery site of Debonne Vineyards before the construction of the winery.

"(Grape vine) site selection is the number one preventative in the eastern U.S. for frost damage," Tony Debevc, Jr. explains. "Good air drainage and a higher elevation help. Also the temperature moderation of the lake effect (later spring bloom and extended fall season) and frequent cloud cover are built-in frost protectors."
