Over the ensuing years, Tim expanded the original plantings from 10 to 24 acres and followed his passion to include traditional Rhone varietals and additional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Tim also seeks out high quality grapes from grower in several regional AVAs like Santa Cruz Mtns and Santa Lucia Highlands for limited production runs.
