“Today you’ll find Chardonnay growing at Silvertip, in addition to the Pinot Noir and Syrah. These are mountain vineyards, with elevations peaking at 1,700 feet. The large amount of rocks is evidence that the land was once an ocean floor.

But these are not fruit bombs, thanks to the cool ocean breezes the vines get from being on the coastal side of the Santa Cruz Mountains range. The wines strike that delicate balance between freshness, ripeness and structure that wines grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains are known for.”
