2016 produced average yields and high quality fruit. Few frost spells in winter and little to no rain led to an early bud break at the end of February. A very good fruit set in spring was followed by a warm summer that kept the vines roaring through veraison and maturation. Harvest began at its earliest ever, August 23rd - November 1, 2016.
The Central Coast AVA is one of the largest and most important grape growing regions in California. Its boundaries stretch from Santa Barbara County in the south all the way up to San Francisco in the north. The geographical diversity of the region yields a plethora of distinct microclimates and affords winegrowers the unique ability to produce a staggering number of grape varietals.
