Vineyard & Vintage Character 

The Jurassic Vineyard is situated in the Santa Ynez valley, at an elevation of approximately 1000 ft. The name pays tribute to the fossil rich soils of the area. This own-rooted vineyard was planted in 1982 on very well-drained sandy and limestone laden soils. A constant breeze from the cold Pacific cools down this sunny site, and the old vines are forced to search deep underground for nutrients and water. Over time, these conditions have turned the vineyard into a gnarly, but charming site for highly textural Chenin Blanc.
