Spear Vineyards were planted in 2014 along the Highway 246 corridor and within the interior of the Santa Rita Hills AVA. These are amongst the highest elevation plantings in the famed appellation. Peaking at 900’ above sea level, there are currently 34 acres in production representing six different grape varietals on a multitude of diverse clonal, rootstock, orientation, elevation and soil combinations. Dedicated to sustainability, CCOF certified organic in-house farming nourishes our soils, enriching the diversity and vitality of microorganisms and thereby improving vine health and vineyard expression. These viticultural practices obviate the use of inorganic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Our in house farming team is guided by the collaborative direction of Ofer Shepher, Greg Brewer and Shannon Gledhill.
