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 Shiraz 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Rather simple on the nose with a creamy, spicy rendition of the blueberry riff, smelling a bit like Pop-Tarts. A bit sweet up front, but suitably rich, round and soft. Quite well put-together actually and a rather rich mouthful of wine, though it does feel and taste a bit extracted. Its a biggish yet simple wine with a vanilla and blueberry mid-... Read More

  • Cupcake Riesling 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Was very acidic and lemony at first, which put me off to it. It sat in the fridge as a cooking wine until I felt I needed a white to accompany a meal and it was the only white left. Seemed sweeter and was more pleasant the second time around, maybe hints of honey? I can't be sure it was the wine opening up that changed the flavor (it may have... Read More
