Sea Sun Pinot Noir is created from the singular beauty and character of the California coast. We launched Sea Sun several years ago with Chardonnay and then introduced Pinot Noir, intrigued by the potential to make a layered wine from California’s great diversity of land.
This wine is sourced from premier coastal regions of California, with the exact breakdown shifting from vintage to vintage. The majority of our fruit is from Monterey County, which provides a perfect climate and high-quality vineyard land. A portion of our grapes also come from Solano County, which is only a 40-minute drive east of Napa Valley and shares a similar maritime climate. While largely undiscovered, Solano is capable of producing exceptional grapes. The remaining fruit comes from San Luis Obispo County, which lends roundness on the palate.
The remarkable landscape of all three regions provides ideal growing conditions– with cooling ocean breezes and an extended growing season that leads to heightened complexity in the wine.
