Vineyards


Camel Hill Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains
Lexington – El Sereno area

Cabernet Franc

Camel Hill Vineyard sits just south of Black Ridge Vineyard above Lexington Reservoir and is farmed by Jon Anderson. Both Camel Hill and Black Ridge lie to the south of the San Andreas Fault rift zone. Jon’s vines are older than Black Ridge and are sparingly irrigated near the end of the growing season. The vines produce wine with more fruitiness and softer tannins that is more approachable at a younger age.


Vanumanutagi Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains
Mount Madonna area

Syrah

Vanumanutagi Vineyard, farmed by Matt Oetinger, is near Mount Madonna at the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains viticulture area. The vineyard sits at an elevation of about 1,000 feet and slopes steeply to the southwest. The rocky, well-drained soils produce low yields of highly concentrated fruit. The deep, dark, inky purple color of the juice at crush is remarkable.


Muns Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains
Loma Prieta area

Pinot Noir

Ed Muns farms 13 acres of Pinot Noir on a Loma Prieta ridge top overlooking Monterey Bay. At 2,600 feet, this is the highest Pinot Noir vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Warm summer days and cool, foggy nights produce a fruit-forward style wine. The vineyard was planted with four different French clones of Pinot Noir (777, 667, 114, and 115) to add complexity and age worthiness.


Gali Vineyard
Santa Cruz
Corralitos area

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Joseph Gali farms 10 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on a Vineyard located just 6 miles from the coast in Corralitos California. This close proximity to the coast and frequent fog cover makes for a cool climate and provides for a long growing season.

Santa Cruz Mountains
Mount Madonna area

Future – First harvest 2022

Richard Hanke farms 5 acres of Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Syrah, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay on a Vineyard located just 9 miles from the coast in Watsonville, California. This close proximity to the coast and frequent fog cover makes for a cool climate and provides for a long growing season.
