The Santa Lucia Highlands sit high above the Salinas Valley in Monterey, California. The north-south orientation of the vineyards and protection from ocean by the Santa Lucia mountains makes this the perfect place for Pinot Noir. The vineyards produce beautiful round wines with great acidity and fruit. Granite soils combined with morning fog and long afternoon sun exposure allow the Pinot Noir vines to thrive and produce well balanced wines.
