The Winery Pietra Santa and its History Pietra Santa is a family-run estate producing artisanal wines and olive oils in California’s Central Coast. The site was planted to winegrapes in the 1850s by Frenchman Theophile Vache who chose the location because of the maritime climate and unique soils. Pietra Santa is 25 miles from Monterey Bay and benefits from cool coastal breezes that allow for a long growing season. The estate’s location on the San Andreas Fault creates soils rich with granite and limestone that naturally lower yields and add distinctive flavors to the wines. The winery was named PIETRA SANTA, Italian for SACRED STONE, in honor of these exceptional soils. In 2005, the property was purchased by the Blackburns, a family dedicated to preserving and building upon this magnificent winemaking history. Read less

This is a vegetally-inflected Zin that came highly recommended by strangers. With food the vegetal qualities seemed less pronounced but after having really enjoyed the Pietra Santa Merlot, I found this disappointing despite its relatively low price. I can get a Dry Creek Heritage or Quivira Zin where I am for just a little more money and not experience the same green taste.

With my friends, I call this the purple wood wine.
