Turner Vineyard is a twenty-one acre vineyard located in the northern part of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Carr Vineyards planted the vineyard in 2000 with a very complex vineyard design. The site was planted with three acres of Syrah, three acres of Pinot Gris, and fifteen acres of Pinot Noir. We recently grafted over an acre and a half of the Syrah grapes to Chardonnay. The vineyard was extremely fun to layout because of its great landscape; there is valley floor, soft hills facing both North and South, as well as a mesa. The first harvest was in 2004 and the wineries producing wines from Turner receive high scores year after year. They always say, the best wines are made in the vineyard and this is a perfect example.
