Winegrowing Regions

Monterey

Windswept and unrestrained, Monterey is one of the coolest, longest growing regions in California.

This 90-mile long valley begins at the Monterey Bay

Just offshore lies the Blue Grand Canyon, some of the deepest, coldest water in the Pacific.

Blue Grand Canyon

The Monterey valley runs south between the Santa Lucia and Gabilan Mountains, and our grapes are grown on the benches in this narrow appellation.

The wind defines this region

Chilled by the Pacific, cold air and fog blows across the valley every day, a contrast to the abundant sunshine.

These strong winds, combined with scarce rainfall, lower yields. Small berries hang on the vine, ripening slowly, providing the desirable combination of vivid natural acidity and full maturity in the fruit.
