About This Wine:
Big Sur’s rugged shoreline. Carmel’s bleached sands. Pebble Beach’s gentle tide pools. All help define this special place, and all of those picture-perfect elements contribute to Monterey’s world-class wines.
Warm sun, cool fog and ancient soils are essential components of the winegrower’s art, and they converge perfectly in Monterey. That’s why renowned vineyards and wineries, both large and small, call Monterey home. From the steep slopes of Carmel Valley to the rolling hills of Salinas Valley, the vintners craft wines of exceptional flavor, character and balance.
In 1960, Professor A.J. Winkler from the University of California at Davis published a report classifying grape-growing districts by climate. Monterey County was classified as Region I and II, comparable to Napa, Sonoma, Burgundy and Bordeaux. No wonder Pinot Blanc fares so well in Monterey, and no wonder the 2019 vintage from Elementus is such an enjoyable wine.
