An experimental viticultural station was established at nearby Molong in the 1940’s, but vines were first planted commercially in 1980. Due to restricted opportunities for irrigation, major vineyard development has slowed since 2000 and much effort is now being put into raising the profile of the region on the national and international stage. The region is home to many small premium operators. The climate is strongly influenced by and largely dependent on elevation. Overall, mild to warm midsummer mean temperatures, seldom rising above 32°C (90°F), are offset by cool to very cool nights during the growing season. The rainfall predominates in winter and spring while the three driest months are February, March and April, making supplementary irrigation highly desirable. Wind is both friend and foe.

  • Emark, if you want to see an Italian Lagrein, drive over to Orange.  WineX has a decent selection of Italian wines overall.  Napa Cabs in Chino isn't bad, either--they actually have wines from Ghemme, which are not easy to find.  But no Lagrein, alas. I enjoyed the Imagery (Remy in WA grows one, not as good), but the best Lagrein is from Sudtiro... Read More

  • Lively aromatics upon rind, tangerine, strawberry, lemon/lime. Full of flesh in the mouth with good weight, and flavors of underripe strawberry, lemon/lime. Medium acids, and soft tannins lead to a nice finish with good intensity and length. On par with what I'd expect from this producer. Read More
