White Hawk Vineyard
After working with the fruit from White Hawk Vineyard for the better part of a decade whileworking at Sine Qua Non, we knew just how special this Vineyard was. We couldn’t have been more excited, when Manfred and Elaine generously offered us the opportunity to take over the two blocks Sine Qua Non had farmed since White Hawk was planted in 2000.
The White Hawk Vineyard is planted on nearly pure sand on the south facing slope of Cat Canyon in Santa Barbara County. White Hawks proximity to the Pacific Ocean helps to insure a cool even growing season. The often nutrient deficient sandy soils cause the vines to struggle, yielding wines with greater concentration, and intense aromatics.
