Bien Nacido Vineyard is a unique site along the Central Coast of California, only six miles as the bird flies from the ocean. The 2015 season was an extension of the already dry conditions established from the previous years of drought. Little to no fog developed, resulting in sun-soaked vineyards and concentrated berries. Bud break began in early March, bloom and fruit set in April, and by early June hints of color were showing through. The growing season concluded with an earlier than usual harvest for the second year in a row.
