    Vesper, California

    Vesper Vineyards started in 2008 with a simple goal: to show that San Diego County can be included among the great wine regions of California. Growing up in the small community of Valley Center, founders Chris Broomell and Alysha Stehly learned from families long rooted in agriculture that the best produce came from San Diego's own backyard. Their families primarily grew citrus, however each encounter a few local vineyards--encounters that stuck with them. After high school Chris went to Santa Barbara to pursue an education in Environmental Horticulture. While there, he took a job at Jaffurs Wine Cellars and fell in love with the winemaking lifestyle. Three years later Chris traveled to South Australia for the harvest, learning hands-on all that he could about every aspect of the process.

    Alysha went on a more formal journey, majoring in Viticulture & Enology at the University of California, Davis where she learned the scientific aspects of grape growing and winemaking. Her education included traveling with fellow UC Davis students to wineries around California, even spending time in Chile and Argentina.

    Vesper Vineyards is the result of combining Alysha's scientific background, Chris' practical experience and the love they both have for San Diego County. Alysha and Chris understand that they can work in Napa, Sonoma or Santa Barbara, yet it is only in San Diego that they can create their own world of wine. Here, with no established style of winemaking and no set varietal to define the area, their options are endless. There is great potential for some excellent wine, especially as the county has such diverse microclimates.

    Vesper Vineyards sources grapes exclusively from these areas to produce their wine. Every bottle brings forth the unique characteristics of the vineyard and its microclimate. So, raise a glass and enjoy the best of San Diego County!

    California

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

    Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

    Other White Blends

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
