Nearing 50 years of age, Adelaida’s 35 acres of historic Pinot Noir vines are situated in a rare mountain microclimate in the folds of the Santa Lucia Mountain range, 14 miles from the ocean. This ideal terroir offers a rare template for translating Burgundy flavors onto a California raised wine; elegance over brawn. Adelaida’s family-owned vineyards include six distinct properties totaling 172 acres in the craggy hillside terrain of Paso Robles’ west side.
A tiny crop from a frost effected year, the 2011 vintage produced only 8 barrels of wine from our 35 acre vineyard. Combining mostly fruit from our upper West-West block which somehow survived the 2 nights of 25 degrees, the harvest was quite late by Paso standards, starting late in the 3rd week of September.
