Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard

Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard is owned by Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines and is located between Lompoc and Buellton on Highway 246. Rather than a single vineyard, it’s actually more like a quilt of many small vineyards, as each block was meticulously planted to just the right varietal, rootstock and clone for that particular slope and soil. There are 225 acres planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since 2002, Flying Goat has been sourcing grapes from the vineyard. Beginning in 2010, we secured clone 667 from block 3, which is an undulating hillside block. This block produces very small berries in very tight clusters with lots of intense fruit and color due to the extreme conditions of the terroir.

Tasting Notes

The royal blood, dark garnet color is complemented by orgasmic black and blue berries on the nose. Explosive flavors of black currants, oak and tannins are seamless across the palate, promising a heaving bosom on the honeymoon night. Food pairings include: prime rib, cherry reduction sauce over duck or pork tenderloin, lobster macaroni and white cheddar cheese, cranberry fig chutney, or a Peruvian chocolate torte.
