Whalebone vineyard derives its name from the many whale and marine fossils trapped in the vineyards’ broken shale and limestone. Calcareous treasures were left behind after the underwater canyons and basins retreated, and when the earth shifted and folded during the Miocene, some six million years ago. In 1989, on this hillside reminiscent of a moonscape, the Simpson Family planted this distinctive property exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the vines have lost their youthful exuberance and are gracefully transforming into a harmonious, low vigor vineyard, which needs little manipulation to produce low yields and high concentration required for quality wine. Whalebone Vineyard and Winery started with the bones and a homemade wine called BOB WINE. Through a process that was more whimsical and meandering rather than purposeful, a colorful History has evolved, on this coastal cattle ranch in the Santa Lucia Mountains not far from Hearst Castle. The surprisingly wonderful fruit and wine produced from vines growing on a rocky hillside led to more ambitious plans, coming to fruition over a decade later with the first Vintage of Whalebone Cabernet Sauvignon. The Tasting Barn (winery-tasting room) was completed in the spring of 2007. We now offer our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, BOB WINE (our cult favorite cab blend), Syrah and Zinfandel. Read less
