The chosen day for the grape harvest is always important. This is when the flavor and juice composition is set. For chardonnay, this day is also when the fruit is pressed—a critical step that sets the stage for its future life in the winery.
Every year at Pisoni, we honor the rugged, windswept slopes of the Santa Lucia Highlands where Gary first began planting grapes in 1982. Lucia wines represent the exploration we do through winemaking and farming in this beautiful region.
The higher elevations of Pisoni Vineyards add rich notes of baked apple, Bosc pear, and lemon curd, while the rocky, unyielding soil of the Soberanes Vineyard showcases signature notes of citrus blossom and wet stone.
