Pacific Vineyard Company has been managing premium varietal wine grapes on the Central Coast of California since planting its first vineyards in 1973.
We currently manage 1,300 acres of vineyards in the Edna Valley of San Luis Obispo County. We provide a turn-key operation for our clients' needs from pre-plant investigation, vineyard development, management of vineyard operations, and arranging for future wine production.
With the high demand for Edna Valley grapes, our fruit has been sold to wineries as far south as San Diego all the way up to Napa, and in years past, even shipped as far away as Japan!
The Edna Valley began in 1972 when Norman Goss and Jack Niven planted the first vines at the Chamisal and Paragon vineyards. Forecasters predicted a boom in wine consumption in the United States and instructed grape growers to plant similar varietals as to consumption patterns occurring in Europe in the early 1970s. Norman and Jack then discovered own-rooted varietals and began planting. As success grew, so did the acreage. The first plantings included: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, White Riesling and Gewurztraminer.
Today, in keeping with the Central Coast’s cool climate, we currently grow sixteen different varietals. This range includes the more common Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to the obscure Teroldego and Souzao varietals. With roughly 1,000 acres certified sustainable, and more on the way, our vineyard practices have changed greatly to meet the demand of our changing environment, prepare for the future, and work with our clients to provide the highest quality fruit.
