The Alchemists


George Troquato, Winemaker & Alejandro Aldama, Cellar Master

The Grape

These are traditional Rosé varietals that make for a wine with body, great acidity and a deep natural color.  Grenache adds acidity and bright fruit aromas.  Mourvèdre, a dark fruit, adds color.

The Land

Sunset Vineyard is in the Hames Valley AVA in the Southern part of Monterey County and sits at the foot of the Santa Lucia Range.  As the sun goes down, temperatures drop dramatically making this AVA enjoy the largest diurnal temperature change of all of the Monterey County AVA's.  Soils are a shaly loam.

The Season


The 2018 harvest was stellar.  Harvest came 10 days later than it did in 2017.  Rainfall was moderate and bloom came on time.  Consistent growing conditions and moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer enabled the grapes to mature slowly and hang longer on the vines.
