On the Cainmuir side of Bannockburn, the Diggings vineyard is planted on a high, rocky outcrop and is one of the highest vineyards in Bannockburn. The vineyard’s slope varies across Sancta, but is estimated at around 10%.
The Diggings looks down and across the river behind Cornish Point. With its higher elevation than the estate, and with soils characterized by relatively more gravels and sandy loam than Terra and Sancta, the Diggings produces wines of a more delicate weight, and are therefore accessible earlier. The fruit from the Diggings Vineyard will go entirely into the Mysterious Diggings Pinot Noir.
