Mindego Ridge Vineyard 2021
Mindego Ridge Vineyard is perched at an elevation ranging from 675 to 935 feet on the south facing, shale laced slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA. Surrounded by redwoods, the vineyard consists of 40 acres with 10 acres planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Only 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, the grapes experience a cool mesoclimate where altitude and marine influence come together to moderate California's late season heat spikes resulting in a regally impressive Pinot Noir.
