Bee Sweet Vineyard
Grape variety sourced: Grenache
Soil type: stoney chert (sedimentary rock)
SIP Certified Sustainable Vineyard
Five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Bee Sweet Vineyard is located in the center of Edna Valley's rolling hills and surrounded by ancient volcanic peaks known as morros.
Bee Sweet is an interesting site for Grenache. A portion of the block has a sheltered North exposure which results in lifted aromatics in the finished wine. In addition, being a cool climate vineyard, the acid retention in this site is second to none.
It is about a mile as the crow flies from Hamish Marshall Vineyard, where we source one of our two Albariños.
