Heart Hill Vineyard lies just seven miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Purchased in 2003, Heart Hill Vineyard is home to 140 acres, of which 46 acres are planted to Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.
This vineyard is greatly influenced by the Templeton Gap, a space in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range that allows coastal winds to cross into the property. The classic rocky hillside soil composition on the property allows for ultra premium viticulture. With temperatures kept in check by the coastal influence combined with the high rock content of the soils, this site lends itself to producing world class wines.
The namesake of this vineyard comes from a long-standing oak grove that grew over many years into the shape of a heart, serving as the backdrop to our tasting room.
