Longoria’s Legendary Fe Ciega

Longoria’s Estate Fe Ciega vineyard is located in the western part of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This gently sloping, south-facing site features a cool, dry climate and clay loam/shale soils – perfect for Pinot Noir. The wines from Fe Ciega are typically dark, intense and highly aromatic. Vineyard-designated bottlings by Longoria and other top producers have routinely earned praise and high scores from the media. The vineyard, planted by Rick in 1998, has been an essential part of the growth and reputation of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Over the past decade, Fe Ciega has proven itself to be one of California’s “Grand Cru” sites for Pinot Noir producing wines with elegance, finesse and the ability to age gracefully.
