Regan Vineyard

Why Regan? by Ryan Beauregard

First and foremost Regan is the only vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains growing one of my favorite varietals, Pinot Grigio.  I fell in love with the varietal years ago.  By 2010 I discovered Orange Wine, which is a process of fermenting white grapes on their skins.  Traditionally, Orange Wine is made from Pinot Grigio.  I did a small experiment in 2011 and became enamored with the results.  We entered into a long term contract with John Bargetto to purchase his fruit.  What I like about the Regan Vineyard is its moderate climate; it sits on a bench just within the Santa Cruz Mountains boundaries on the borders of Watsonville, CA.  The site is the coldest and slowest ripening site in California, allowing me as a winemaker to make Pinot Gris (French for Pinot Grigio) in a style consistent with my other wines.  I am able to achieve a ripe flavor at low alcohol, while preserving the racy acidity that makes me love the Santa Cruz Mountains.  I now make this wine in two ways: as an Orange Wine and as a White Wine.
