Translated from the Spanish word for "estate," our name emphasizes our conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia, we control this process from the start--from our experimental vineyard block trials to planting, harvesting, fermenting, and aging the wines. Our Monterey-based winery allows us to devote the same detailed attention that we give our California estate vineyards. Open-top fermenters and small basket presses allow us to create exceptional Pinot Noir, and new red-wine fermentation tanks are individually matched to a myriad of diverse vineyard blocks. It's this unwavering devotion, from the vineyard to bottle, that results in the consistent, superior quality of our wines. Our Wines Available in three distinct tiers, our fruit-forward, food-friendly wines are grown with passion from the finest fruit from the best California vineyards.
