Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from some of California’s top wine-growing regions.The vineyard locations can all be described as coastal, but the climate differences are significant, depending on the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site.
Each wine is crafted to distill the purest essence of the vineyard into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.
The Wagners began cultivating this vineyard in 2001. It was a gem in the rough. Sown in 1972 from a Pinot Noir clone known as Clone Martini named after Louis Martini (from the vineyards of the same name) who had obtained it on one of his trips and even though this varietal was still somewhat rare to harvest. This vineyard was planted with its own roots (a very natural method of growing vineyards), and was nearing the end of its productive life, however, after years of intense care that adapted a new “Trellis system”, about 1,000 tons of compost and diligent irrigation, the vines responded with new vitality! Aged and protuberant ones like these are special and beautiful. The vineyard's location is near the intersection of two lonely roads southeast of Santa María, which is why it is called "Clark and Telephone". This is one of the oldest and largest Pinot Noir vineyards in California - an exceptional vineyard!
