Mansfield-Dunne is a grower-producer of Santa Lucia Highlands wines. By owning our vineyards and meticulous organic farming we can showcase the true essence of the Santa Lucia Highlands — great wine truly starts in the vineyard.
Our two estate vineyards — Peterson Vineyard and Cortada Alta Vineyard — offer the span of possibilities in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. Both vineyards share terroir, yet express themselves completely differently.
Cortada Alta is our high-elevation vineyard and is the highest vineyard in the AVA. The wines produced show, depth of structure and intensity. Planted in 2014, the vineyard is just starting to reach full maturity.
The Peterson Vineyard runs alongside River Road at the base of the Santa Lucia Mountains, and just above the Salinas Valley floor. Peterson is our namesake vineyard, well-known for producing wines of classic SLH aromatic intensity and elegance.
