At Castoro Cellars we have some of the most beautiful estate grown vineyards in the world and we are fully committed to farming them sustainably and organically. We believe you can taste the difference!
Of all the Castoro Vineyards, Blind Faith definitely takes the cake for best story behind the name. When the vineyard was acquired in the late 90s owner Bimmer Udsen was home in Denmark visiting family. While she was in Denmark Niels (her husband and co-owner) found this vineyard on the market and immediately knew it would be a great acquisition. The only issue was Bimmer was not around to see the property and time was of the essence! So Niels called Bimmer in Denmark and told about the 400 acre property she had never seen. On "Blind Faith" she gave him the green light and the vineyard has been one of our flagships ever since!
Planted circa 1990 and located off Hog Canyon Road, adjacent to Hog Heaven. All varieties are own-rooted. This vineyard has the steepest and most varied terrain of all the Castoro holdings. Some of the vineyard has had to be terraced, and varies from hillside to essential streambed. Soils are very well drained and of low moisture holding capacity. Again, a three wire vertical trellis is employed. All new plantings are on resistant rootstalk.
The vineyard is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chenin Blanc.
