The Alfaro Family Vineyard was planted in the rolling hills of Corralitos about three miles from Monterey Bay. Sun bathes this south-facing slope, its heat moderated by cooling air and fog from the nearby bay. This microclimate is ideal for producing Pinot Noir that expresses the site at naturally low alcohol levels. Winegrower Richard Alfaro farms the vines meticulously by hand. Deficit irrigation and the nutrient-poor sandy-gravel-loam soil results in naturally low yields of one to two tons per acre.
