Spring Mountain District
Irene Sarocka Scully
Planted by David Abreu, and now exquisitely farmed by Roberto Corona, this 2.5 acre vineyard is situated on a steep, south-facing slope of Spring Mountain. Overlooking the vineyard of rocky, Aiken soil is a rich panoply of gardens cultivated by Rick Weeks. The vines are the body of Sarocka, but the flower gardens are the soul.
Family is at the heart of this project, from the label – Sarocka is Irene’s Lithuanian maiden name – to the Spring Mountain vineyard where she hosts her six children and increasing brood of grandchildren. With a keen eye for beauty and a love for travel, she likes to say “It’s better to do it right than do it easy.”
