In the late 1960s, Jerry Lohr began an extensive investigation of California grape growing regions – searching for the ideal location for his first vineyard. Jerry was raised on a South Dakota farm; his agricultural roots armed him with an innate sense for the relationship between climate, soil, and location. His research and instincts led him to the Central Coast, an area just beginning to explore its potential for winegrowing.
Our focus on achieving the best possible flavors in our wines begins with careful stewardship of the land. We take this tenet to heart in the management of our 3,700 acres of estate vineyards, located predominantly along California’s acclaimed Central Coast.Explore Our Vineyards
