“This is an area that produces world-class chardonnay, pinot noir, and cabernet sauvignon… The mountainous geography means that the fog affects the vineyards in variable ways: Some are hot enough to ripen cabernet, others are cooler and better suited for chardonnay and pinot noir.” – Jim Rollston MS, wine director at Manresa in Los Gatos, California.
