This vineyard was planted for and by Dave Phinney. It reflects his excruciating attention to detail. With a focus on showing the terroir of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dave Phinney is producing single-vineyard wines from the property starting with the 2021 vintage.
In 2015, Dave Phinney set his eyes on a n extreme property just outside the Central Coast town of Lompoc. The abandoned row crop farm was on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, known for its sandy , silica – rich , diatomaceous earth soils and cool , windy climate that produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay unlike anywhere. After years of hard work planting Our Lady of Guadalupe , Dave and his team decided to start a new brand focused exclusively on producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the vineyard , so much so that the vineyard and wine is known as ‘ OLG ’ . Simply put, this is the only project in the United States where Dave makes wine from a vineyard he owns. The 2021 vintage is the first of many.
