Estancia is translated from the Spanish word for “estate,” and emphasizes the brand’s conviction that the world’s best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia, we control the process from the start — from the trials in our experimental vineyard blocks to planting, harvesting, fermenting and aging the wines. We’ve built a winery adjacent to the Pinnacles Vineyard that allows us to devote the same attention to detail in winemaking that we give to our estate vineyards. Open-top fermenters and small basket presses allow us to handcraft Pinot Noir, and new red-wine fermentation tanks are individually matched to the diverse blocks in our Keyes Canyon Vineyard in Paso Robles. It is this hands-on crafting of the wines, from grapes to bottle, that results in our consistent and superior wine quality.
