Pure Grenache from one of our favorite Grenache vineyards in Northern Santa Barbara County, which has a unique climate influenced by cool, foggy mornings and windy afternoons due to its proximity to the ocean.  Martian Vineyard lies on gentle hillsides in Alisos Canyon near the town of Los Alamos, and is situated directly between the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley AVAs.  This small twenty-acre vineyard is certain to be one of the most sought-after sources for Grenache fruit in the years to come. Biodynamically farmed and hand-crafted, with an extremely low level of added sulfites.
