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 Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The 2013 Sauv Bl is a bit light in extract. Citrus and slight Gardenia nose. Lemon in the mouth. Light color but good acid. Pleasant wine. My rating -- 83. Read More

  • Cupcake Red Velvet Cupcake Red Velvet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I have to start this review by noting their 2010 Cabernet from Chile is awful. Here we have incredible complexity and smoothness in a dry red for $10, it's hard to beat in its class. A little sour cherries in the front and rich oak and tannin on the finish. Vanilla, allspice, a touch of anisette, and just remarkable for 10 bucks. Read More

  • Cupcake Riesling Mosel Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I was a bit surprised that this QbA was enjoyable. Nice fruit, good acid, 1% RS. Nice citrus and mineral. Excellent value. Lacks classic German Riesling perfume nose but still enjoyable. My rating -- 86. Read More

  • Cupcake Vineyards Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Rather big and herbal on the nose but lovely ripe herbs all laid upon a base of sweet black currant and blackberry fruit supported by some cedary oak.
