Regan Estate Vineyards:
is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. With nearly 40 acres
planted with twelve different varieties and clones, Regan Estate
Vineyards is one of the largest and most diverse vineyards in the
Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. Regan is located fifteen miles
east of BARGETTO WINERY in the Corralitos area of southern Santa
Cruz County with a commanding view of the Monterey Bay. The 50 acre
site sits atop a hilly knoll and receives cool breezes off the Monterey
Bay, a national marine sanctuary. The Santa Cruz Mountains appellation
stretches from southern Santa Cruz County to Half Moon Bay. The
mountainous topography of the region precludes the planting of many
Regan Estate Vineyards in
the Santa Cruz Mountains
Regan Estate Vineyards cool climate location, one of the coolest in
all of California, translates to a very long growing season that begins
in March and generally finishes in November when the last grapes are
harvested. The soil at Regan varies, but is generally a loamy-clay.
Some sections at Regan have heavy clay; other sections are quite sandy,
while other areas are rockier. Due to the unique combination
of excellent sun exposure (atop a knoll), cool climate and loamy soil,
the wines from Regan tend to be rich in flavor, have good acidity
(important for aging) and the reds are deeply colored. BARGETTO WINERY
produces six wines which primarily come from Regan: Pinot Grigio,
Regan Vineyards Chardonnay, Regan Vineyards Pinot Noir, Regan Vineyards
Merlot, Reserve Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot, and La Vita (Blend of
Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Refosco). Get more
