Established in 2001, the Sea Shell Vineyard is nestled on the banks of the Huero Huero Creek just one mile east of the Salinas River. The vineyard site was chosen for its unique microclimate and extraordinary soil composition. Along with the attention to detail in selecting the site, the original owner strategically selected grape varietals and their proper clones that would take full advantage of the nourishment the estate provides.
Sea Shell Cellars focus is to achieve the very best flavor profiles in our wine; this starts with the careful stewardship of the land. The estate vineyard is managed very diligently by focusing on irrigation, canopy management and cluster thinning. We feel that focusing on these key farming fundamentals affords us the opportunity to achieve proper vine balance and maximizing fruit flavors in the vineyard, resulting in balanced wines that are deep in varietal character and terroir.
