The Anderson's Conn Valley has 26 acres (10.5 hectares) of vineyards, divided into nine blocks. These produce above 16,000 cases annually. The vineyards are known for the artfully crafted blends like Éloge, Éloge Gold and the newest Bordaeaux-style blend, Right Bank. What is unique about this place is the extended time of barrel-aging in two underground caves. Wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Éloge are stored for a minimum of two years in barrels, prior to bottling. This is the secret to wines of good color, taste, and smell.
