Bald Mountain Vineyard, located in Bonny Doon, is owned and farmed by Jim Beauregard. Planted in 1990, the 40 acre vineyard sits at an elevation of 920 to 1050 feet on a southwest facing slope. Monterey Bay marine influences combine with the rare white sandy Zayante soil to produces wines with minerality and striking acidity.
624 cases were produced. The fruit is whole cluster pressed. It was aged on the lees in new French oak barrels for extended periods of time to develop character and bottled on August 2014.
