The original Fallbrook Winery opened in 1981 and was used primarily for champagne production through the late 1980s. In the mid 1990s, the winery property was purchased by the current owners and replanting of the vineyards began. The first plantings were Bordeaux varietal clones and included Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. Syrah, Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc were planted in 2005.
The winery is located on the northern 33rd parallel. Our first vintage of the Estate wines was released 2006. Our signature Bordeaux style red blend by the winemaker and is in reference to the barrel designation and yeast preference used in the wine’s production.
Sangiovese grapes grapes were planted on the hillside vineyard in the spring of 2005 and an additional three acres of Syrah, one acre of Grenache and 4 acres of Sauvignon Blanc were planted in 2008.
