Exclusive new Pinot Noir from Winemaker Dave Phinney - limited.

The inaugural vintage. Six different labels, same wine. (Purchase a 6pk and get all labels)

In 2015, Dave Phinney set his eyes on a extreme property just outside the Central Coast town of Lompoc. The adandoned row crop farm was on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, known for its sandy, silca-rich, diatomaceous earth soils and cool, windy climate that produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay unlike anywhere. After years of hard work planting Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dave and his team decided to start a new brand focused exclusively on producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the vineyard, so much so that the vineyard and wine is know as 'OLG' Simply put, this is the only project in the United States where Dave makes wine from a vineyard he own.

Tasting Notes: "The 2021 Our Lady of Guadalupe Pinot Noir's fluorescent ruby core and a flashing vermilion rim pour into the glass gracefully. Immediate aromatic complexities abound, rife with notes of black cherry, hibiscus, rose petal, a touch of strawberry, caramel apple and confectioner’s chocolate. The entry dances across the palate with framboise, pomegranate and baking spices, enhanced by the soft texture and ripples of acidity. The piquant finish continues the flow of energy as the acid brings together notes of amaro and black cherry, yet again. "

100% Pinot Noir from Our Lady of Guadalupe Vineyard. This vineyard was planted for and by Dave Phinney.  It reflects his excruciating attention to detail.  With a focus on showing the terroir of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dave Phinney is producing single-vineyard wines from the property starting with the 2021 vintage.

Winemaker Dave Phinney: "For many years, we’ve been coming down to the Santa Barbara region in search of the highest quality Pinot Noir in California. We’ve sourced fruit from across the county and have been introduced to special, well-known vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. We fell hard for the area and were lucky enough to find a diamond in the rough—an abandoned row crop farm on the western edge of the AVA. With barns full of coloring books, formidable pitbulls and chunks of diatomaceous earth protruding from the soil, we purchased the property in 2015. Over the first two years, we fed the soils with compost, gypsum, lime and nitrogen-fixing cover crop. With the renewed soil health, we planted our first set of vines at Our Lady of Guadalupe (OLG) in 2018, followed by subsequent plantings in 2019 and 2020."
