Garys’ Vineyard is a partnership between Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni. Both families’ roots in the Santa Lucia Highlands are quite deep. Their families have farmed this area for over 100 years. Recognizing the region’s potential for premium wine grapes, the Garys turned their focus to viticulture and partnered together on the Garys’ Vineyard in 1997. A star was born. Both Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni exude passion; for adventure, for family and friends, for grape growing, and for wine. They have managed to combine all of these by pouring their enthusiasm and energy into the Garys’ Vineyard. Our fi rst vintage of Garys’ Vineyard was in 2005. Well known for bold, unique wines, this vineyard lies in the middle reach of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation in Monterey County. Our blend is comprised exclusively of the Pisoni Clone.
AROMATICS: Verdant and supple, with dark plum and stone fruit character, along with hints of apple blossom.
ON THE PALATE: Boysenberry and concentrated wild berry fruit distinguish a dense, juicy core. Savory minerality is complemented by a bright acidity, defining the center palate. The mouthful is ample and plush, with a lingering finish.
