Ranch 32

Vincent Catalaa

Vincent Catalaa

Located 120 miles south of San Francisco lies the deep Monterey Submarine Canyon.  This submarine canyon brings a constant upwelling of cold, nutrient rich waters to the surface of Monterey Bay, making it one of the richest and most biodiverse marine habitats in the world.  This cold, upwelling water also chills the air, which creates fog that flows down from Monterey Bay into the Salinas Valley, cooling the vineyards and giving Monterey County the longest growing season of all of California’s famed viticultural districts.  This cool fog often lingers over the vineyards until mid-day.  Then as the sun warms the valley floor, the fog burns off and the warm air rises, drawing in a cool, reliable ocean breeze over the vineyards and preventing the grapes from overheating the hot California afternoon sun.  The cooler temperatures and longer growing season allow the grapes to ripen slowly and develop rich and intricate fruit flavors while preserving crucial acidity.  Ranch 32 vineyard sits in the middle of this viticultural sweet spot, and the result is perfectly balanced, food friendly wines at very cool prices.

Ranch 32 Sauvignon Blanc

The grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc were grown on estate vineyards in Monterey County, California. The majority of the blend hails from our San Lucas Vineyard located south of Greenfield in the sub-appellation of San Lucas. The warm days followed by cooling afternoon winds from the Monterey Bay enhance the melon and tropical fruit flavors. Fragrant and zesty citrus aromas with a hint of herbal notes lead into a light-bodied palate with lovely flavors of pineapple and guava. The lingering bright fruit finish is crisp and refreshing, making our Sauvignon Blanc an ideal apéritif.
