Pure Grenache from a burgeoning new vineyard 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.  Portico Hills Vineyard lies on steep hillsides just west of the town of Los Alamos, and is situated directly between the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley AVAs.  This small vineyard is certain to be one of the most sought-after sources for Grenache fruit in the years to come. Sustainably farmed and hand-crafted, with an extremely low level of added sulfites.
