Our winery is located in Monterey County, California where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean. It’s this cooling influence that slows the growing process, increasing the time the grapes “hang” on the vine and thereby allow our grapes to mature a little slower than in hotter regions. Slow growth and cool weather leads to a more balanced level of acids and sugars, thereby adding to the complexity and structure of the wines of the Central Coast. This region is poised to become one of the newest and most exciting viticultural opportunities in the coming years. This slow pace continues in our cellar where we take the time to craft wines that are complex, rewarding and hand made. Gentle pressing, cool fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and long barrel aging in small barriques allow us to elevate our wines so that they are rich, creamy and downright delicious. Our winemaker, Adam Richardson has since added a few additional wines from other cool Read more »

When the cap was loosened, the entire top part, all of metal, revolved, and the cap could not be parted from the rest of the top piece. Finally, we had to use a metal snipper to t...

  • I recently discovered Cupcake Chardonnay and delcared it as my "newest favorite chard"! Having been a big fan of Domaine Chandon Chard, this rates equally as good and is much more affordable. Cheers to the vineyard and winemaker! Cupcake Girl
