About Santa Lucia Highlands
 
Designated an American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1992, Santa Lucia Highlands is part of the western mountain range shielding the Salinas Valley from the Pacific Ocean. Located 15 miles inland on California's central coast, between San Francisco and Santa Barbara, the region consists of southeastern-facing benches sitting above the morning fog and cooled by coastal winds that sweep in from Monterey Bay. The cooling fog, afternoon winds and good sun exposure lengthen the growing season, allowing the grapes to hang on the vines longer, developing complex flavors while keeping their attractive, crisp acidity. This terroir makes the Santa Lucia Highlands perfect for growing premium Pinot Noir.
