Kobra Vineyard is a 2.5 acre vineyard located in a small, pristine valley west of Atascadero in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. This valley is a unique microclimate located 11 miles from the ocean and blessed with abundant rainfall and cool ocean breezes that result in late bud break and long hang times uncommon for most of SLO North County. We are a family business and have been involved in North County viticulture for over 17 years and we perform 100% of the work in this vineyard. We farm Syrah Noir exclusively (clone 877) on 19 year old vines that produce between 8 and 10 tons of fruit annually.

This vineyard has had purchase contracts each year since inception. From 2010 thru 2018 the fruit from this vineyard has gone exclusively to Robert Hall and Brady Vineyard, both under the winemaker Don Brady. In 2019 Don decided to drop his Syrah program and we contracted with other purchasers. However, Don is the most familiar with our fruit and is available to discuss its merits with prospective purchasers.

So, if you are interested in this opportunity to lock up the outstanding fruit from this unique family owned and managed vineyard, give us a call and come visit. See for yourself the vigor and fruit development in our prime blocks and we think you will agree that this is truly a rare opportunity to augment your Rhone style program.
