The Lomita Estate
- While the winery wasn't formally established until 2009, La Lomita's land holdings include vineyard sites with some of the Valle de Guadalupe's oldest vines.
- La Lomita produces most of its wines with fruit from their organically farmed vineyards located mid-valley on a northwestern facing slope at 950 ft elevation. The winery is one of the few to be certified organic.
- Their vineyards lie approximately 11 miles from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft. The soil profile is a mix of clay and granite.
Total production: 17 acres under vine, 8 wines, 7,500 cases

Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:
A result of the first light press of grapes from the famed old vine Pagano vineyard, this organically dry farmed rosé of 100% Grenache delivers notes of cotton candy, saltwater taffy, fresh herbs, plums and blood orange in a package that's like silk on the tongue.
Drinking window: Now - 2 years
