Albratross Ridge

Planted and farmed by the Bowlus family, with the meticulous care of a grand cru-quality site, this special vineyard yields some of the Central Coast’s most distinctive and stirring estate-grown wines. Made with a light touch by rising-star Winegrower and Winemaker Garrett Bowlus, the wines of Albatross Ridge offer an elegant meeting point between nature and nurture. Recognized for their vivid aromatics and varietal purity, these wines have earned an incredibly loyal following among sommeliers and collectors of great cool-climate California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
