Winemaker's Notes

Our Rabbit Ridge Westside Collection is named for the desirable Westside area of Paso Robles located in the Central Coast of California. The Westside's unique micro climate, coastal influence and higher elevation combined with marginally fertile soil create the perfect setting for producing the highest quality grapes we demand for our wines. Equally attractive aspects are the active limestone and rocky calcareous hillsides like the great vineyards in Italy and France. Implementing years of fine winemaking techniques and influenced by the great beauty of Italy, Winemaker, Erich Russell created this collection to reflect his passion for Tuscany and the Westside's similar beauty. We feel so strongly about the noteworthy Westside location of Paso Robles that we planted all of our vineyards on this supreme terrain. We hope you enjoy this wine from our Paso Robles Westside Collection. 1200 cases made.
