The twelve-year-old vineyard is located west of Refugio Road and north of the Santa Ynez River. This location offers a very unique microclimate associated with its proximity to the base of the Santa Ynez Mountains and a stone’s throw from the river. The foggy mornings, warm sunny days and cool evenings provide an environment conducive to producing premium fruit from each grape variety specifically selected for this microclimate.
The Crist family purchased this established vineyard in 2007. They continue to produce ultra-premium fruit for their own use, as well as, many local esteemed winemakers. By utilizing hand-farming techniques the Crist’s are able to control the vineyard in a manner that enables them to produce the highest quality product year after year.
