These grapes are grown from a small block (less than 1 acre) at our Estate Vineyard in the Los Olivos District. The word Picpoul means “lip stinger” and it is one of the oldest grape varieties from the Languedoc Roussillon appellation of France. The majority of the Picpoul Blanc that we produce is a crucial component of our Estate M5 White Rhône style blend providing excellent acidity and freshness to the finished wine. 185 cases made.
