Tondre Grapefield was planted in 1997 on six and half acres in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. This is the regions terroir affording grapes an extended “Hang Time”. This means more sunlight on the vine and more even ripening, with sufficient cool-down in the evening to firm up the grapes natural acidity. As a result, grapes have an intense expression of deep fruit flavors gaining complexity and nuance from the deep vine penetration of the sunlight. The importance and interdependence of combining grower and vintner is omnipresent for wine quality assurance and protection of a vineyard designation vintage by vintage. Vignerons globally have known this for centuries. With this old and new world wine acumen, Tondre chose carefully a cluster of vignerons to ensure that Pinot Noir made from the Tondre Grapefields’ are among the premier wines
