It wouldn’t be a Spanish influenced winery if it didn’t have Tempranillo. As Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are to Italy, Burgundy and Bordeaux to France, Tempranillo is to Spain. As Spain’s flagship varietal, in the right hands it produces some of the greatest wines ever made. In certain elevations of California, we are very similar to several regions in Spain renowned for producing Tempranillo. While they are not trying to replicate Spain in California, they are trying to produce a California-style Tempranillo, just as winemakers have done with Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
