The winery’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean, a mere 26 miles to the west, ensures a relatively mild and arid climate throughout the year. The moderate weather and complex, rocky soils make this a perfect setting for our 325 acres of Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundian varieties.
The 2012 growing season was more by-the-book than we have experienced in recent years. A mild winter with modest rainfall was followed by a warm, sunny California summer. The weather afforded our vines the opportunity to grow without the stress of an extreme environment. The end result is a line up of some of the most varietally sound, delectable wines we have ever produced.
