Cutruzzola Vineyards is located in a coastal valley just outside the town of Cambria on California’s Central Coast. By fortune of geology, many of our vineyard blocks contain limestone, which limits yield and enhances quality.
In 2000, while walking along Santa Rosa Creek Road in Cambria, we came across a parcel of land for sale. Just about seven miles outside of Cambria, the property was comprised of steep hillsides with varying exposures ranging from southeast to southwest. The climate of the vineyard was notable for gentle cool breezes and abundant sunshine, the fog often stopping two miles to the west.
The property was purchased and five acres of Pinot Noir were planted in 2001, and two more acres were planted to Riesling in 2006. Due to the presence of limestone, low available nutrients and limited water resources, growth was slow and our first commercial harvest was in 2009.
Our Cambria tasting room opened in January 2015. In addition to our limited-production wines, we also have a number of unique gift items for sale.
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Reisling, Zinfandel.
