Cupcake Vineyards

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 »

  • Cupcake Red Velvet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice and smooth, dark chocolate, blueberry, raspberry, a touch of sweetness and a great value for $10-11. The smoothness on the finish reminds me of Estancia Merlot, a velvety finish. It is very rich with dark fruit & dark chocolate and made in a similar style to Cupcake's outstanding Malbec. A second bottle was just a good as the first ... Read More

  • Cupcake Vineyards Merlot San Luis Obispo County 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not a huge fan of Merlot but for $8 or $9 I paid for it, this wine is all cherries and cinnamon, two flavors I just love. I suspect Cupcake might be adding some spice to make their wines so tasty, but everything I've tried with the Cupcake label has been excellent. I almost want to go higher than 4/5 but I guess the wines are just not comple... Read More

  • Cupcake P Sirah 750m 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I love my red wine, but don't typically like deep full bodied reds. I received this Cupcake Petite Sirah as a gift, and it is amazing! This wine is a delicious blend of mixed berries with hints of espresso and chocolate. It goes perfectly with a meat dish or pasta dish, but also does just fine by itself! It's smooth, it's full of flavor, and I w... Read More

  • Cupcake Red Velvet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Personally, I think this wine can be summed up in two words, supple and smooth. The reason I did not give this wine 5 glasses is because I feel I am to inexperienced of a taste tester to give a full 5, but in all honesty if you are looking for an affordable wine to compliment a girls night, it's "subtly sweet" and has a smooth after taste, one ...
