About This Winery
Just a couple blocks from the main downtown shopping area is this unpretentious little gem of a place focusing their efforts of fine Rhone varietals. The South Swell Syrah fits the image as the wines are produced within earshot of the beach.
The small operation can be spotted by the wine barrels scattered around in their parking lot and the napping winery dog at his pillowed sentry station. Venture into the winery building and you will find jacketed stainless steel tanks, some folding tables with wine and T-shirts, a small wine lab in the corner, and surfboards on the walls. The owner winemaker is usually present and pouring, talking about and sampling his many wines.
It’s all about Rhone wine here and specifically the notable Syrah. Seven different versions are made from this grape from a number of county vineyards. Very small amounts of each wine are produced– each displaying their unique terroir. Let the winemaker guide you through tasting his wines made from the same grape and the same vintage but from different local vineyards. The subtleties become apparent and your tasting experienced will be memorable.
Grenache, Petite Sirah, Roussanne, Sangiovese and Viognier complete the food friendly and fruit forward wines that are made here.↑ Less
