Monterey County has sandy soils and diverse climates which provide excellent growing conditions for varietals
traditional to Burgundy in the north and Bordeaux in the south. Cool air from Monterey Bay helps to produce a longer growing season for grapes, while also allowing extra “hang-time” on the vines, giving way to a characteristic depth and concentration of flavor. Our Pinot Grigio is crisp and light with good texture and acidity, offering delicate flavors of citrus, peach and apple. It makes an excellent accompaniment to fish, soups and many vegetarian dishes.
Since its inception in 1994, Castle Rock Winery has built an enviable reputation for producing high quality wines at affordable prices. This winning formula has been highly successful, as proven by an increasing number of customers and members of the wine press who have given the wines glowing reviews.
Castle Rock buys grapes from approximately 40 grape growers, all renowned for their expertise and consistency. In each case, vineyard practices are carried out under the guidance and instruction of Castle Rock’s winemaker, August Briggs, all to ensure that quality standards are maintained from start to finish.
After the harvest, the wines are made in accordance with Castle Rock’s winemaking standards, and are bottled at wineries, boasting state-of-the-art equipment, located in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Castle Rock’s business model aims to please, lovely on the palate, easy on the wallet. By virtue of having a low overhead, (no nagging real estate mortgages, no marketing teams or large staff to employ, and no elaborate facilities) Castle Rock is able to funnel all their capital into making the best possible wine for the best possible price.
