Vineyards Notes

A classic cool climate variety, Pinot Noir is an anomaly in the Paso Robles AVA. Adelaida’s mountain vineyard is distinguished for its old vine heritage (planted in 1964) and its location, in a coastal influenced valley. This historic vineyard, begun by Dr. Stanley Hoffman has been owned by Adelaida since 1994. Facing south on a steeply sloping swale, it has reduced sun exposures and is a collection area for the cooler air mass. This diverse landscape of ridge tops, rocky slopes, and natural depressions produces a complex set of aromatics and subtle flavors. Vine rows run east to west with traditional wide 1960’s spacing, a mere 519 vines/acre. On its own roots (a rarity in modern viticulture), it is drip irrigated and produces yields of only 1-1 ½ tons/acre.
