|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
|Brand||Francis Ford Coppola|
Santa Lucia Highlands, where Pavilion is grown, is a high-elevation sub-appellation of Monterey County. The vineyards rest on mountain hillsides 300-400 feet above sea level and are comprised of sandy loam soils. In addition to regular morning fog and afternoon breezes, the nighttime temperature in these vineyards can be as much as 30° lower than the daytime temperature. This creates a very slow, even ripening process and subsequently leads to extremely concentrated fruit with good dimension. Wines from this region tend to have more natural acidity than those from the slightly warmer Arroyo Seco vineyards where our Gold label Chardonnay is sourced.
