Terroir

Winemaker Anthony Yount said it best: our terroir at Sixmilebridge is nothing if not extreme. Were we crazy to plant Bordeaux varietal grapes into the face of an impossibly steep, untamed hillside overlooking the westside of Paso Robles—best known as premier Rhone growing country? Maybe a little. But we’ve never run from hard work, and we knew the growing conditions rivaled the best in the world.

Here, exceptional quality fruit is born from a thick layer of limestone dominate terrain that stretches out in every direction down steep hillsides. With staggering temperature swings of up to 50 degrees that soar and drop daily, and a consistent and daily breeze from the Pacific Ocean, our low-yield fruit is stressed, tried, and tested.

Estate Vineyards

Maidie Vineyard

Named for Jim’s paternal grandmother, Maidie Vineyard was planted in 2013 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Zinfandel. Anchored in the southwest corner of the estate, Maidie comprises 13 .66 acres characterized by steep slopes and limestone dominant soil riddled with natural fissures creating excellent drainage.

Grace Vineyard

Following the planting of Maidie Vineyard, Grace (a tribute to Jim’s maternal grandmother) was planted later in 2018 with Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. With close to 10 acres in the northeast parcel of the property, the exteme aspects and clay/limestone soil require minimal irrigation.
