SANTA MARIA VALLEY
BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD
The famed Bien Nacido Vineyard was planted to Pinot Noir in 1973, one of the oldest vineyards in the region. Farmed by Chris Hammell, we purchase grapees from the hillside Blocks 45 and 11. As well as the own rooted, old vine Block Q.
SIERRA MADRE VINEYARD
First planted in 1971. Sierra Madre has long been recognized as one of the state's finest cool-climate vineyards.
Planted in 1999 by Ken Brown and Mondavi, to multiple Dijon selections and clones of Pinot Noir. Soils composed of sandy and clay loam. Located on the western edge of the Santa Maria Valley.
Solomon Hills Vineyards are composed primarily of ocean derived sandy loams. It is the western most vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley appellation, and the coolest of all vineyards in this growing region. With the Pacific coastline only miles away, a constant maritime influence results in wines of precise acidity, bright fruit and an inherent elegance
LE BELLE ROSE Vineyard
Le Belle Rose Vineyard is located on the foothills of the Gabilan Mountain range in the Salinas Valley. With morning fog, afternoon onshore breezes, and soils composed of limestone and granite gravel; this site is very special.
