We are very excited about a new project that we will be starting at Cambria within the next few months – the beginning of some new vineyard plantings!
We’ll be planting our 400 acres of fallow land in the next couple of months, so please don’t be alarmed if you see anything like the picture below when we drive up to our winery:
It just means that our replanting project is underway! Our tasting room will still be open every day from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
It has been a couple of years since we had to pull out the vineyards that were previously planted on those acres, so we are really excited to start replanting this spring! The vineyard blocks to be replanted will primarily be Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as some more acres of Syrah in order to make some more of our popular Tepusquet Syrah!
After these vines are planted, they will take about three years before they begin producing fruit, and another couple of years before vines have matured enough to create fruit that will be ready to go into our wines. After that, we will get to play more – with which blocks are best for Julia’s and Katherine’s, and which ones will be interesting enough on their own to go into our small-production single-clones wines.
We hope you pardon our construction for now, and look forward to creating even more dynamic, delicious, and intriguing wines for you from these new vines when they start producing fruit!
