Pietra Santa is a family-run estate in the beautiful Cienega Valley just 25 miles from
California’s Monterey Bay. The proximity to the coast provides cooling, maritime breezes
and a long growing season resulting in vibrant and flavorful wines. The estate also benefits
from granite and limestone soils and is named Pietra Santa or “Sacred
Stone” in honor of the unique terroir. The estate’s winemaking history
dates back to the 1850s when Frenchman Theophile Vache first planted
vines in the Valley. In his honor we dedicate the Signature Collection.
Today, the winery is owned by the Blackburn family. It is their goal to
create the best possible wines and continue the tradition of quality
winemaking in this special place.
The Pietra Santa estate is bisected by one of California’s most significant
fault lines, the San Andreas. Over the years, the earth’s movements have
filled the soils with granite and limestone and a rock quarry can be found
on one edge of the valley. This creates low yields and adds interesting
characters and flavors to our wines. The Signature Collection represents the
best of our estate and is created from hand chosen blocks of fruit, made
with the finest care and attention and aged in specially selected barrels.
