Tucked high on a southeast facing ridge, our small family-owned vineyard is situated to take advantage of sunlight, views, and the cooling breezes coming up the San Lorenzo Valley from the Pacific Ocean. Our boutique Ranch vineyard currently has 4 acres of vines planted exclusively in Pinot Noir, and we utilize old-world wine making techniques to craft small lot offerings of our unique hillside vineyard wines as well as wines from a few other specially chosen local vineyards.

SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS AVA
"The Santa Cruz Mountains is California's all-time underRated wine district."
With maritime influence, and a hillside vineyard site with complex, shallow, rocky soil, a sense of terrior comes through in the wine. Tended right, most of the winemaking happens in the vineyard.
...High quality Francois Freres barrels help too!
