Our wines come from premium vineyard sites strategically located near the cool marine influences of the sun filled California coast. With each new vintage, we offer wines of consistent flavor and exceptional quality from vineyards perfectly suited to that particular varietal.
Currently, our terroir-driven wines include: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, Pinot Noir from Carneros, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Central Coast, and Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma County.
We love to produce wines from Napa Valley, mainly because the appellation offers such a diverse microclimate within this fairly small American Viticultural Area (AVA). Only 30 miles long and 15 miles wide, the temperatures in Napa vineyards vary by up to 15 degrees north to south with the vines receiving cool afternoon breezes from the San Pablo Bay. As you can imagine, we are able to produce wines with tremendous flavors, aromas and complexities. Today, we produce a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The Carneros AVA includes parts of Napa and Sonoma counties and sits north of the San Pablo Bay. Cool fog and bay breezes make for a cooler and more moderate climate than northern Napa and Sonoma. This climate creates a longer growing season perfect for our Pinot Noir; lending crisp acidity, tight structure and spicy berry fruit to this delicious wine.
The Paso Robles AVA is located in San Luis Obispo County half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco along California’s Central Coast. With day-to-night temperature swings greater than any other appellation in California, Paso Robles is a unique wine region with distinct microclimates, diverse soils and a long growing season. These aspects provide optimal growing conditions for producing exceptional wines. A long growing season of warm days and cool evenings give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavor profiles.
Sonoma County is home to over 12 different AVA’s and runs from the Pacific Ocean east to Napa Valley. Similar to adjacent Napa Valley - although almost twice the size - Sonoma County offers a diverse set of microclimates, geographies, and soil composition from which fruit is produced. Our first offering from Sonoma County is our Sauvignon Blanc. We look forward to additional offerings from this appellation in the future.
The name itself should give away our main reason for producing wines from this region. The Central Coast stretches 250 miles along the California coast line from San Francisco County to Santa Barbara County. This region complements our winemaking philosophy beautifully; to produce wines from premium vineyard sites strategically located near the cool marine influences. We chose this appellation to produce both our inaugural and current vintage Chardonnay. When you try our Chardonnay, you’ll understand why we selected the Central Coast.
