Adelaida’s  6 distinct family owned vineyards lie in the craggy hillside terrain of west Paso Robles, 14 miles from the Pacific coast.  Ranging from 1500 – 1900 feet in elevation these low yielding vines are challenged by chalky limestone soils and afternoon blasts of cool marine air, a diurnal temperature swing of 40-45 degrees.

A unique blend of pinot noir and Rhone varieties, this crisp edged wine is made in the traditional French style, called “saignee” or literally to bleed.  Essentially a “blanc de noir” or white from red, the ripe red grapes impart their aromatic personality to the lightly colored wine.

Ten percent of the juice was quickly (within the first 1-2 hours) drawn off the just-picked fruit, ensuring a delicate carnation-pink hue from the short skin contact.  Then all varieties were fermented in 100% neutral French oak & then stainless steel aged in their respective vessels before blending together.  Bone dry, the wine is an ideal aperitif, summer and fall quaffer, contributing a light fruitiness and refreshing citrus tang.
