Adelaida's Historic & Unique Vineyards
Adelaida's vineyards include seven distinct properties totaling 168 acres in the craggy mountainous terrain of Paso Robles' Adelaida District. Only 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, these are steep and elevated sites (1400-2320 feet), characterized by chalk rock limestone soils, afternoon blasts of cool coastal air, and a daily microclimate that swings 40-50 degrees. With an emphasis in Rhônes, old vine pinot noir, dry farmed zinfandel, and mountain style cabernet sauvignon, our stressed vines produce low yields of precise flavor.
“You can’t plant a 50 year old vineyard. You inherit it and show respect for it.”
Adelaida Vineyards & Winery’s mission is to produce world-class wines and set industry standards for excellence. Adelaida completed the necessary 82 prerequisites and is a Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing Winery & Vineyard (CCSW). Created by Wine Institute and the California Association of Winegrape Growers, the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CCSW) is a nonprofit organization that promotes the benefits of sustainable winegrowing practices, enlists wine industry commitment and assists in implementation of the Sustainable Winegrowing Program. This third party verification is another testament to Adelaida’s philosophy of optimal economic, environmental and social performance.
