John Steinbeck

"I remember that the Gabilan Mountains to the east of the valley were
light gay mountains full of sun and loveliness, and a kind of invitation,
so that you wanted to climb into their warm foothills almost
as you want to climb into the lap of a beloved mother."


Robert  Parker

"Eden Rift is an exciting new project in the Cienega Valley. Winemaker Cory Waller, whose resumé includes stints with Tony Soter and Josh Bergström, has eked an excellent inaugural vintage from this interesting site, which benefits from calcareous soils rare in California that are especially propitious for the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay."

   ravel back in time (around the John Steinbeck era) on one of the most exclusive and historic hidden gem Vineyards among the many treasured California Central Coast Wineries.


If you think you know Napa, you have only begun to experience another extraordinary worldliness and sophistication with our Hidden Gem Wine Flight. This chosen vineyard is among the oldest, continually producing estate vineyards in California. There’s a reason Pinot was planted here 80 years ago; this is truly a hidden gem to enjoy and feel the history as John Steinbeck did!
