' Vineyards - Soquel Vineyards




Owned by Frank Saveria, Saveria Vineyard is located in Corralitos on top of sandy loam soil and planted to 10 acres of Pinot Noir, clones 667 and 115. Sitting at 400 feet elevation on the Corralitos Bench, the wines exhibit rich and robust full-bodied characteristics that balance between fruit and earth flavors. 




Coast Grade

Nestled at 1,300 feet elevation, this 17 acre vineyard on Bonny Doon Road is farmed by Ryan Beauregard. It is located in the Ben Lomond Mountain AVA, Santa Cruz Mountains only sub-appellation. It is solely planted to Pinot Noir; Dijon clones 828, 115, and 667, and Pommard. The vineyard sits atop a limestone slab with sandy top soil and yields only 1 to 1.5 tons per acre, creating a wine with earthy complexity and deep concentration, unlike many California Pinot Noirs. With its close proximity to the ocean and influence of the fog, these wines consistently show promise to be age worthy. Pinot Noirs crafted from this site include the single vineyard Coast Grade and Stretched Boundaries.
