About Cadre:

CA· DRE - [kah-drey] –noun: an impassioned group that has banded together to further the cause of a movement.

Cadre Vineyards embodies the pioneering spirit of the visionaries, or "Architects," who had the foresight to plant Pinot Noir on the South Central Coast. The appellations of the Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Sta. Rita Hills have each brought international acclaim to the greater area, helping it rise to the top as one of the premier New World Pinot Noir producing regions. Within each of these AVAs are four vineyards that have proven to be incredible sites for producing top-quality Pinot Noir.
