From the calcareous soils of Paso Robles comes our blend of Viognier and Roussanne. Here, warm daytime temperatures give way to mild evenings as Pacific breezes flow over the mountains and cool the vineyards. Similar in climate to France’s Cotes du Rhone, these varietals have not just thrived-they’ve found their own unique character in California.
In the 1800s, American Pioneer Wine Growers was the very first company to market wines using intriguing proprietary names that were based on unique stories imbedded in American culture. While using proprietary names is a common practice today, it was quite the innovation in 1906! Today, we’ve taken this spirited approach to the next level by creating a series of four wines that are part of an immersive experience, each wine revealing one part of a mysterious tale that will conclude with the unveiling of our new winery in Geyserville, Sonoma County.
