The J. Lohr Beck Vineyard is situated at 1,700 feet above sea level in the Creston District of Paso Robles, just 22 miles from the cool waters of Morro Bay. The soils at this unique hillside vineyard are composed of weathered sandstone and shale with minimal organic content, creating an ideal environment for low-vigor viticulture and high-quality wines. Syrah Noir was planted here in 2000 with loose spacing, to provide each vine with ample root volume upon which to draw nutrients from the shale. Farming is focused on pruning and thinning to balance the crop load to the low-vigor nature of Beck.
