Located on the southwest corner of Red Mountain is Terra Blanca’s 300-acre estate. A combination of slope, soil composition and climate make our vineyard very special. Currently 91 acres are planted.
Soil Composition of our Red Mountain Estate Vineyard:
The soil of the Terra Blanca estate is composed of silty fine sands and fine, sandy silt loams with interbeds of carbonate-coated gravels, cobbles and boulders. Silt, sand and loam hold very little water and when combined with drip irrigation allow for very tight moisture control. Calcium carbonate also adds to the flavor and texture of the wines, imparting silky chalk and earthy notes.
