Winemaker Notes
A cool-climate varietal by design, the Gewürztraminer grown on our estate benefits from the gentle slope of a western hillside which allows the cool breezes of the nearby Pacific Ocean to moderate daytime temperatures. True to its reputation as one of the most aromatic grape varietals in the world, our 2012 screams with grapefruit, orange blossoms and lemon and lime zest.
Food Pairing Notes
The wine is bright and refreshing - a perfect accompaniment to grilled seafood or spicy dishes.

Production Notes
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.
Vineyard Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.
