Steeply sloping Quinta Santa Rosa
Vineyard is located on Santa Rosa Road in the southeastern
corner of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Its four
acres are soley planted to Pinot Noir – the
eastern block contains Dijon clones 667 (on 3309) and
777 (on 5C) in equal amounts, while the western block
consists of clone 115.
In addition to the Estate Grown Quinta Santa Rosa wine, Steve creates a Sta. Rita Hills Appellation Cuvée Pinot Noir using grapes from the estate vineyard and neighboring vineyards such as Fiddlestix and Rio Vista vineyards.
In special years, Steve has also released a single-vineyard Fiddlestix wine and a single clone (2A) wine, all from the Sta. Rita Hills appellation.
In addition to these Pinot Noir wines, Steve also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris wines.
