An Adventurous Interpretation of Old World Wines
Rocosa Loma Vineyard
Well-drained, granitic, rocky
Rolling hills, Santa Lucia Mountains at western edge, Alluvial Terrace at eastern edge
Vines are trained vertically to open up the canopy and capture as much sunlight as possible. Two critical adaptations for growing quality grapes in a cool climate.
Vines are oriented North/South so afternoon winds move easily through rows. We remove leaves from the east side of the vines because there's no worry about sunburn from an afternoon heatspell.
