Solomon Hills Estate

The sister winery to Bien Nacido, Solomon Hills was born as the Millers ventured slightly west from the Bien Nacido site. They stumbled on this special parcel of land that was also used in the late 1850s by the bandit Salomon Pico, the inspiration behind Zorro. The vineyard was planted in the late 1990’s and christened Solomon Hills. It is the westernmost vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley, just eleven miles from the ocean. The combination of ocean-derived sandy loam soils and marine breezes contribute to creating wines marked by a zingy freshness, chiselled fruit and utter elegance.

California

Easily the United States' largest and most significant wine region, California has been front and centre of the American wine industry since settlers planted vines as they moved up the coast in the early 1800s. The region travels down the Pacific Coast from its border with Oregon and vineyards are found all along the landscape, making use of the diverse terrain located next to the sea and further inland. It's hard to pinpoint the climate of the whole region but broadly speaking the regions close to the coast benefit from cool breezes and the rolling sea-fogs which wash over the vineyards, while the interior regions get exposed to sweltering temperatures. These changes in climate and topography dictate the grapes used across California. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted in large quantities, while Pinot Noir is found near the sea in cooler pockets. Further inland Zinfandel produces inky, bold high-alcohol wines. California is home to many growing zones, known as AVAs, including Napa Valley, Central Coast, and Clarksburg.

Chardonnay

Produced in wine regions across the world, Chardonnay is a white wine producing grape, and is made in many different styles. From the lean, crisp wines of Chablis, to the exceptional dry Blancs de Blancs of Champagne and the buttery, rich, oaky wines of the warmer regions of California, Chardonnay wines exhibit a full spectrum of flavours and styles. As a fairly neutral grape, it is the land, soil, location, climate and winemaker that have the biggest impact on this famous grape.
