Dove Pond Vineyard is located directly adjacent to our own property in the Templeton Gap area of the Paso Robles AVA. The 18 + acre site is separated from our field by just a narrow strip of oak trees and shares the same distinctive calcareous shale and sandstone soils. Irrigation is very limited and the vines are planted north-south, taking full advantage of the warm summer growing season. The result is low yields of dense, high quality fruit.
