Vineyards are full of history. There is always a great deal of energy and dedication that goes into the start of something that will grow on for decades to come. Laurel Glen Vineyard was originally planted to mixed red varietals by German immigrants at the end of the 19th century but then on the eve of a modern proliferation of vineyards in California, it was replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon by Carmen Taylor. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon along with Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc are the leading wines produced by Laurel Glen Vineyards.
Today, the 14 acre estate is farmed organically and planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon, in particular the Laurel Glen clone of Cabernet Sauvignon that has been certified as a unique clone by the University of California in Davis. The leading wines from Laurel Glen are Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé. Laurel Glen Vineyard strives to make a structured mountain wine with minimal handling, using gravity flow whenever possible and keeping all lots separate. The result is a wine that is supple, intense, fragrant and balanced – perfected over the years through trial and error.
