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.

Currently under contract.
