Vinography Images: Around the Bend

The road into Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon snakes around vineyards and a majestic oak, as vines show their winter silhouettes against the new growth of green below. Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon is an unusual part of the Santa Ynez Valley that, by virtue of its topography, can ripen Bordeaux grape varieties in a traditionally cool-climate region better known for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Vinography Images: Mustard and Lime

The bright yellow of mustard flowers and the bright white of calcareous earth brighten a vineyard in Santa Barbara County. Uncommon in California, calcareous earth is rich in calcium carbonate, the primary mineral in limestone, which many believe to offer an ideal set of growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Vinography Images: Santa Lucia Rainlands

Fog hangs heavy across the Salinas Valley, just above the tops of the vineyards of the Santa Lucia Highlands, which rise up the alluvial hillsides of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Today, amidst yet another wave of rainfall, the Salinas River is expected to potentially burst its banks, temporarily turning the entire Monterey Peninsula into an island.

Zinfandel vines hunkered down for the winter are seen through a cold morning mist in Alexander Valley. Sonoma County plays host to some exceptionally old vineyards of Zinfandel, some of which are found in Alexander Valley. These days, they are a rarity, as more and more acreage gets converted to the more lucrative Cabernet Sauvignon.

A winter storm darkens the sky behind the rows of vineyards that line the road through Happy Canyon in Santa Barbara’s wine country.
