Just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Edna Valley Vineyard has one of the longest and coolest growing seasons in California. Its location in one of the state's few east/west-oriented valleys allows nighttime coastal fog to move inland, cooling the grapes after a long day in the sunlight, so that they slowly mature while retaining sufficient acidity. The vineyard's unique site consists of layers of clay and volcanic rock over ancient ocean subsoil. We are a partnership between Paragon Vineyard Company, which is owned by the Niven family, and Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines. The Niven's planted Paragon, our estate vineyard, in the early 1970s and the Chalone Wine Group joined with the family to establish a partnership as Edna Valley Vineyard in 1980.Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines purchased the Chalone Wine Group in 2005. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Al, I have bottles of both in the inventory.  Keep your eye on the various threads, and you'll probably see more of my comments.v v, for sure the Santa Ynez and Lompoc areas are getting a lot of attention, these days, and, based on my personal research, much of it is well-deserved.  I like Edna Valley because it is "the road less traveled."  As ...

  • I'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in the Central Coast.  I wanted to do a little wine tasting, and we headed over to Edna Valley.  For some reason Edna Valley seems to be the least appreciated AVA in the Central Coast region. I really don't get it.  There are several wineries there that offer terrific products at... Read More

  • Edna Valley Vineyard Merlot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Opens with some green pepper and raspberry, Rather thin and not quite a mouthful and somewhat disappointing, but after sitting in the glass a bit, becomes deeper, more complex, with more pronounced jam and preserves flavors and cocoa. Turns out to be not too bad and at the price point, a good deal. Read More

  • Fox, we are having guests, tonight, and I was thinking of offering that Brooks.  It will be a game time decision. Al, I enjoy all Keenan wines, and, in fact, as Fox has suggested, the Syrah is really not my favorite.  He is right about their Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  They actually have two Merlot bottlings--Napa Valley and Carneros.  I pre...
