This 160-acre ranch has 9 planted acres. Situated on the coastal side of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the cool maritime breezes moderate the effect of the abundant sunshine, creating the perfect climate for producing high-quality Pinot Noir. The Nelson Family does an amazing job of farming the land and delivering high-quality fruit. We love making wine from this vineyard - it truly represents our vision.
