Lafond Vineyard

Sustainability in Practice Certified Wine

The Lafond Vineyard Syrah uses a special blend of grapes created by winemaker Bruce McGuire that always includes at least 50% fruit from old vines planted in 1972. The Syrah from the Lafond Vineyard’s old vine block produces fruit with complex spice and floral notes. This Syrah is an honest and delicious reflection of the past and present.

This wine showcases the ancient marine soils and the cool coastal climate representing the best of Sta. Rita Hills.

Winemaker Notes
75% of the wine is from our grafted Syrah block. In the early 90’s, we grafted Syrah onto Chenin Blanc which had been planted in 1972, 48 years ago. This is our most overt cool climate Syrah. The 25% balance is from 22 year old vines.
