Boulder Ridge Vineyard.
The Vineyard

The vineyard designation “Old 46” comes from the scenic road on which we’re located. In the 1930s, old County Road 46 was the main route between Cambria and Paso Robles. The narrow twisting road running alongside Santa Rosa Creek was known as “old 46”.

Our Syrah vineyard is composed of two clones; 383 and 174. Chosen for their consistent quality color, richness and unique perfume of violets. The hilly, south facing exposure in the Syrah, allows for ultimate “sun time” and the cool evenings time to rest.

Our west facing hillside is home to the Pinot Noir. It too, is composed of two clones; 115 and 667 both chosen for yield, intense color and structure. With the exposure, come challenging north winds making young shoots vulnerable to damage. A bountiful harvest in the Pinot Noir is that much more rewarding.

Our soil in both vineyard varies from loam to clay, with native grasses as our ground cover. We practice a no till method, only mowing between vine rows. All cuttings are left as mulch to enhance organic matter and all weeds are removed by hand.
