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.
Over the past two decades the Santa Ynez Valley has emerged as one of the most celebrated winegrowing regions in California. Formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, it is the largest AVA in Santa Barbara County. The cool, western portion of SYV is well suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The warmer eastern section is home to aromatic Rhone whites such as Viognier, Rousanne and Marsanne and bold reds including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
