Production

Viticulture

The Monterey American Viticultural Area (AVA) is one of Monterey County’s top growing regions, with day-to-night swings of up to 50 degrees producing vibrant, lusciously flavored grapes. Grapes for Montoya wines were grown in our Monterey vineyards, giving us control over quality from the time the vines are planted until grapes are harvested.  The grapes for the Montoya Pinot Noir come from CSWA certified sustainable vineyards, Wiley Ranch and Suter Vineyards in Monterey’s Arroyo Seco AVA. These vineyards produce grapes with crispness, fine structure, and ripe berry flavors.

Vinification

After a cool night and early morning harvest, the free-run juice was first fermented in stainless steel and then completed malolactic fermentation in French oak. The wine was aged for 9 months in 100% French oak, lending a silky richness and complexity to the wine, followed by a single racking prior to bottling.

Owning & Enjoying
