Our champion Pinot Noir vineyard of Santa Barbara County, the Duvarita Vineyard site consists of south facing slopes grown in well-drained beach sand soils just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vines are planted close together and trained low to the ground to protect them from the cool ocean breezes and to reflect heat from the soil. Rigorous farming techniques such as following lunar cycles and integrating native herbs and minerals back into the soil create earthy, terroir-driven characters and intense flavors to the fruit. Soft sandy soils can be experienced through the silky texture of this opulent yet polished Pinot Noir.
