Huerhuero Vineyard

Huerhuero Vineyard, adjacent to Huerhuero Creek just southeast of Paso Robles, is planted in the transitional hilly terrain at an elevation between 830 – 1,030 ft. and spreading into both the El Pomar and Geneseo sub-AVA. This location is a crossroads for marine air entering the region from both the Templeton Gap and Salinas Valley. The soils consist of gravelly calcareous subsoils – a well-drained composition that naturally tames vine vigor. The climate and limiting soils yield balanced structured wines with varietally expressive fruit.
