Whether drawing upon our own vineyards or working with exceptional neighboring properties, our winemaking team has a long track record of crafting world-class Pinot Noir.

Tondré Grapefield has earned a reputation as one of the Santa Lucia Highlands’ top vineyards. Well-drained hillside soils and crop size limited by afternoon fog and cool breezes are a recipe for great Pinot Noir. Tondré Grapefield is the result of Tondré Alarid’s desire to establish a vineyard, and his son Joe’s resolve to produce ultra-premium wine grapes. 

The grapes were completely destemmed after hand sorting. Manual punch downs produced a wine with supple texture and soft tannins. The wine was transferred to 40% new French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and 11 months of aging.

On the nose is raspberry gummy candy, highlighted by allspice and forest floor. Red and black fruits are framed by a medium body with soft tannins, making this wine extremely food friendly. Grilled salmon, roast chicken, or Beef Bourguignon are all great pairings.
