Appellation: Central Coast

The Central Coast appellation is a wine region that spans the Southern San Francisco Bay to the northern part of Santa Barbara. This region has a characteristic warm mediterranean climate with some very cool evening periods affected by its mountain passes leading to the Pacific Ocean. This warm weather and fertile land let the vines mature slowly and impart the grapes with maximum flavors, sugars, acids and the necessary components that make up this beautiful Vino Vargas wine.
