Located in the bucolic Carmel Valley of Monterey County, Ben Pon turned his energies from car design (he developed the Volkswagon van) and race car driving towards winemaking in developing Bernardus Winery. The warmer temperatures of Carmel Valley are more suited to growing Bordeaux varietals so wineries that pursue a passion for pinot noir must secure fruit over the eastern hills in the cooler climes of the Santa Lucia Highlands. One of the top sites in the AVA, Rosella's Vineyard supplies grapes to many of the best wineries specializing in Monterey pinot. The grapes for this cuvee are a blend of 777 and the very rare Pisoni clone aged for 10 months in 40% new oak from four of Burgundy's best coopers. Only 321 cases produced.
