Hidden Valley Vineyard is our proprietary vineyard, located in Paso Robles’ Westside, just south of scenic Highway 46 West. Late in the growing season, the coastal influence that creates the cooler Templeton Gap microclimate often brings a swirling morning fog to the lower parts of the vineyard. Our Pinot Noir block is planted at the lowest, coolest spot in the field, which we nicknamed “Foggy Bottom”
It would surely seem purely coincidental that the area of Washington DC occupied by the State Department and the infamous Watergate complex is also named Foggy Bottom. But as we find ourselves saying so often here at Cloak & Dagger, there are no coincidences...
