At the northern and southern boundaries of the vineyard, glacial run-off thousands of years ago cut deep channels – “breaks” – in the landscape. Water still runs through these breaks. And these are the “breaks” on the vineyard “boundaries” that give Boundary Breaks its name.
The deep “breaks” at the northern and southern boundaries of the vineyard have their own type of vegetation and micro-climate. They resemble the condition of the land at the time the glacier receded, leaving behind the Finger Lakes.
