This vineyard is the newest vineyard partnership between Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni. Called for the family of the original Spanish land grant, the site is in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. It is positioned on a little bluff right next door to renowned Garys' Vineyard. Planted in 2007, Soberanes has thirty-eight acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. It sits on timeless alluvial sandy loam soil. Mark Pisoni and Gary Franscioni are the vineyard managers. This release is an exciting one for Testarossa; it is an extension of our long relationship with the 2 Garys. Offered our performance history, Director of Winemaking, Bill Brosseau is permitted significant input on the viticultural practices in the blocks destined for Testarossa.
