Bien Nacido is one of the Santa Maria Valley’s most legendary growing sites. Despite its close proximity to Presqu’ile, the vineyard’s fruit leads to vastly different wines. The site was originally planted in 1973 by the Millar family. The soils are dense and rocky with clay and sandstone. We find this produces a structured, fruit driven wine. Our Chardonnay comes from W and I Block and our Pinot Noir comes from G Block and Block 44.
