Established in 2004, it has rapidly risen to the forefront of fine wine production. Its backdrop, the dramatic limestone hills, not only provides a scenic vista but also influence the unique character of the wines produced there.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the vineyard is spread across 40 hectares and flourish in diverse soils, from windblown loess to clay and limestone, giving the wines a distinct terroir. The winery practices organic viticulture, and the vineyard thrives on its elevated position, absorbing the surrounding terroir into each grape's core.
