Winemaker's Notes

Bien Nacido, literally Spanish for "Born Well," is one of the vineyards in Santa Barbara where Steele Wines purchases Pinot Noir Grapes. It is an expansive tract of land with many different aspects and exposures. It sits on a bench above the Sisquoc River and is one of the most well known of the Santa Barbara area vineyards. Many of the most pretigious wineries in California purchase grapes from this vineyard.

Food Pairing: The wines made from Bien Nacido have a unique "Terroir." A salty, briny complexity reminds us that the grapes are grown close to the sea. Salmon in dill sauce or rack of lamb work well with this wine. Try to avoid heavy sauces or reductions as these may cover some of the unique character of this wine.
