California is divided into 17 grape crush districts, encompassing a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. District 7 is Monterey County, home to world-class vineyards and exceptional wines. What makes District 7 so special? District 7, aka Monterey County, has the longest growing season of all of the districts, a result of the chilled marine air from the Monterey Bay that rushes down the Salinas Valley each day.
Of all grape varieties, Pinot Noir is the most sensitive to its terroir. We work hard each vintage to get it right in the vineyard so that when the grapes are harvested and arrive at the winery, we can step aside and allow the fruit to speak for itself. The cool temperatures of District 7 present ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir. Each afternoon, the reliable winds from the Monterey Bay come howling down the valley, keeping our estate vineyards at a moderate temperature.
