About Pierce Vineyards

Pierce Ranch Vineyards is a small, family-owned operation centered in southern Monterey County's San Antonio Valley appellation. We produce limited-run, estate-grown wines with an emphasis on Spanish and Portuguese varieties.

As a smaller operation with a comparatively low case volume, our approach to winemaking is fairly similar to our approach to winegrowing. Dealing in a number of small lots that isolate different corners of our vineyards, we tend to experiment with a variety of different yeasts and fermentation practices, handcrafting each lot in the process.    In general, our intention is to produce balanced wines that provide robust yet elegant expressions not only of the varietal but of the region as well. Though we are interested in taking advantage of our warmer climate and of the richness and intensity it helps to produce, we also intend to steer clear of overly big wines with their stratospheric levels of alcohol that mask flavor. In the end, we hope to strike the perfect balance between nature and nurture, finding the ideal middle path that best presents the remarkable potential that these varietals have demonstrated in our unique area. Ultimately, we’re interested in creating wines that make a true contribution to the landscape of viticulture and winemaking in Monterey County.
