Monterra

Monterra Monterra means "my land." Our San Bernabe Vineyard in Monterey County is home to our winery. The vines are grown there with special attention to all the land has to offer -- from earth to vine to wine. We strive to grow grapes that suit the land of our vineyard and sustainably support the environment to preserve it for generations to come. Sustainable farming also means that we can continue to make the highest quality Monterra wines for years to come. Our San Bernabe Vineyard is the most diverse single vineyard in the world, with more than 20 grape varieties planted in 21 different microclimates. This area is one of the coolest growing regions in California, perfect for developing excellent flavor concentration and balance in red and white wine varieties. Short bursts of warmth during the day are followed by cool afternoons and cold nights from breezes off the Pacific Ocean. Well-draining, sandy soils from ancient sand dunes gently stress vines, causing them to develop intensely flavored grapes. Our land affords us the opportunity to craft our award-winning Monterra wines and this label is symbolic of our devotion to the land…

  Monterra Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2004 Monterra Cabernet Sauvignon melds deep blackberry and cassis notes with hints of vanilla and cola on a lingering finish. Oak adds depth, which complements the bold fruit character. Typical of Cabernets from cool Monterey, this wine has soft, round tannins that fill out the palate.
  Monterra Chardonnay
Monterey is well known for its well-balanced, easy-drinking Chardonnays and our 2004 Monterra Chardonnay is no exception. This Chardonnay exhibits bright tropical fruit character of pineapple and tangerine with hints of toasted graham cracker and vanilla on a creamy finish.
  Monterra Merlot
The 2004 Monterra Merlot displays rich red and black fruit character, including raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Hints of mint and chocolate complement the vibrant fruit in this wine. Soft tannins, typical of wine from the cool Monterey coast, support the flavor profile.
  Monterra Sauvignon Blanc
Our 2004 Monterra Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, clean wine with a mélange of ripe melon and other tropical fruit characters. Notes of lemon grass, lime and bell pepper add complexity.
  Monterra Shiraz
Our heritage is critically acclaimed Shiraz and the 2004 Monterra Shiraz measures up with ripe plum and dark berry character with hints of the white pepper that distinguishes this varietal from Monterey. Oak contributes notes of vanilla and cola. The intriguing flavors are supported by soft tannins, providing a velvety finish and great aging potential.
