  • Founded: 2010 by the López family

  • Winery location: The winery and its vineyards are located at the very northern end of Valle de Guadalupe on a unique stretch of land where the valley narrows almost into a canyon. The steep valley walls provide thermoregulation that make this site completely different than any in the valley. The pronounced floral elements and fresh high acidity of their wines are largely thanks to these unique attributes of their microclimate. 

  • Region and grape source: All grapes are estate grown in Valle de Guadalupe approximately 18 miles from the Pacific. They currently have 18.5 acres under vine. 

  • Annual production: 4,000 cases 

  • Number of wines made: 8

  • Vineyard location, elevation and grape varieties: 

    • Valle de Guadalupe - 1,000 ft - estate vines - (Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Syrah). the site is dominated by sandy soils with a small amount of clay. 

  • Winemaker: enologist Santiago López Viana (Mexican born, trained at UC Davis, lives in Valle de Guadalupe)
