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 aords winegrowers the unique ability to produce a staggering number of grape varietals.
2017 was marked by its heavy rainfall, heat spikes in summer, and high quality fruit. Winter rains replenished the soils leading up to budbreak. Temperatures throughout spring and early summer were moderate, resulting in slow even ripening. A heat spike at the end of August – early September propelled us into harvest. We began picking the fruit on August 31st through November 3rd, 2017 at optimal maturity.
