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
2019 S. Blanc - La Lomita
Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:
Always a blend of white grapes but vastly dominated by Sauvignon Blanc, this wine takes you on a drive through orchards of tropical fruits, citrus blossoms, and an herb garden before leaving you lying on your back on a freshly cut lawn, smelling the fresh spring air in the light of the setting sun. Bright acidity and a light body allow this vintage to lift off the palate. A refreshing summer wine or wine for food pairing any time of the year.
