Bien Nacido Vineyard
LOCATION: Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County
PLANTED: 1855 (ranch sold to Ontiveros family, first vines planted). 1970 (Miller family expands planting)
SOIL: ‘Los Osos’ Clay Loam
JAFFURS GRAPES: Syrah, Grenache, Viognier
JAFFURS HISTORY: 1995 marked the beginning of our long and fruitful relationship with Bien Nacido Vineyard. Our Syrah comes from the highly coveted hill-top ‘Z Block’, and our Viognier is from a newer planting in block 16 (behind the ABC/Qupe winery). In 2012 we picked up a newly planted and ultra-steep Grenache block.
