La Vida Bella Vineyard


We named our vineyard after the California lifestyle our beautiful vines and fine wines represent. We are a family owned, small production winery dedicated to making estate grown, handcrafted artisan style wines with emphasis on quality not quantity, letting our handpicked grapes speak for themselves. Our goal is to make great wines without compromise. Cheers, Joseph & Pamela

Practices & Techniques

All of our wines are grown, crushed, fermented, aged and bottled right here at our vineyard. From vine to bottle, wine does not leave here until you take it home!

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Planted in 1997, our vineyard consists of eight acres Pinot Noir and four acres Chardonnay. Grown six miles from the Pacific ocean on a southwest facing hillside and swale, vines are surrounded on three sides at 600 foot elevation. Microclimate has cool foggy evenings and nights, clearing mid morning to warm sunny days. The sandy loam terroir enhances our wines with a distinct signature identity.

Olive Grove:

We have 100 Italian olive trees dotting the grounds of our estate. Our olive tree collection consists of 50% Leccino, 25% Fratoio, 15% Maurino and 10% Pendolino.
