About

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 1,525 acres of vineyards in the Edna Valley of San Luis Obispo County and approximately 250 acres in other local areas. 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, north to Napa, and in years past, even shipped as far away as Japan!

The history of Edna Valley in viticulture began in 1973 when Norman Goss and Jack Niven planted the first vines in the Edna Valley. Forecasters predicted a boom in wine consumption in the United States and advised grape growers to plant similar varietals as to consumption patterns occurring in Europe in the early 1970s. Mr. Goss and Mr. Niven 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, Pacific Vineyard Company currently grows eighteen different varietals. This range includes the more common Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to the obscure Teroldego and Gruener Veltliner varietals. With roughly 1,400 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.
