Vinous Map of Santa Lucia Highlands
"The Santa Lucia Highlands encompasses 6,400 acres of vineyards in a strip approximately 18 miles long in the Santa Lucia Mountain range, in Monterey County, about two hours south of San Francisco. This rugged stretch of land consists of a series of alluvial fans in the Salinas Valley that rise into hillsides, elevated plateaus and terraces, all created by land that was broken off from the North American plate and moved north by the force of the San Andreas Fault somewhere in the range of 60-250 million years ago...
Vinous Maps are much more than just illustrations of vineyard boundaries. Visually, we strive to capture the essence of each appellation in vivid, topographical detail. The backs of our maps describe the history of each appellation and its key vineyards, with smaller 3-D maps like those above that allow us to focus on key elements of each region. We aim to distill the essence of these attributes, along with microclimate, geology, soils and number of other factors, in order to gain a deeper understating of a region, and ultimately, of its wines."
