Vineyard Notes
This site was first planted in 1973 to Pinot Noir by the McFarland family. Purchased by Steve McIntyre in March 1987, it has been intensely upgraded and subsequently certified as sustainable by the CCVT. Of the 80 acres, 60 are planted to vines and 20 are set aside as a wildlife corridor. This vineyard has the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Santa Lucia Highlands.
