Our 50 acre estate in San Benito County is located a few miles inland from the cool ocean breezes of Monterey Bay. This, combined with warm daytime temperatures, result in a long, gentle growing season. Vineyard yields are monitored and kept at optimum levels to ensure maximum fruit quality, which helps create well structured, balanced wines. Our estate varietals include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Mourvedre. Our emphasis on the vineyard helps us craft wonderful, elegant wines.

Evening at the Winery.




Another beautiful day in Hollister,




Founder and Winemaker, Frank Leal.

Details

In addition to extensive picnic facilities the facility has several Bocce Ball courts as well as a small stage for hosting events.

Did you know?

In 1998 at a ripe old age of 28 years old, Frank Leal left his blue collar job and purchased 50 acres for the new vineyard. The chosen spot?  The foothills of Hollister, in San Benito County towards the northern end of California's sprawling Central Coast region.  Leal recognized that here was a perfect synthesis of climate, soils, and people for producing truly great wines.
