Production Notes

2016 was a vintage of both high quality and quantity of fruit. We had an early bud break, which began in the third week of February and a warm spring that led to slightly earlier bloom. Summer temperatures were mild and warm resulting in a good fruit set and average yields. We harvested all the fruit between August 23 - October 8, 2016. Our earliest harvest to date.

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.
