Pierce Ranch Vineyards is a small, family-owned operation centered in southern Monterey County's San Antonio Valley appellation. We produce limited-run, estate-grown wines with an emphasis on Spanish and Portuguese varieties.
Pierce's intention is to produce approachable, fruit-forward wines that provide robust yet elegant expressions not only of the varietal but of the region as well. Though they are interested in taking full advantage of our warmer climate and of the richness and intensity it helps to produce, they also intend to steer clear of overly big wines with their stratospheric levels of alcohol that mask flavor. In the end, they hope to strike the perfect balance between nature and nurture, finding the ideal middle path that best presents the remarkable potential that these varietals have demonstrated in their unique area. Ultimately, they’re interested in creating wines that make a true contribution to the landscape of viticulture and winemaking in Monterey County.
