Vandale Vineyard is located in the Northeast section of the newly formed AVA Los Olivos District in the Santa Ynez Valley. The vineyard is planted with three acres of Sangiovese and is managed by Ryan Carr. It is a high-density vineyard, which means that the vines are planted very close to one another. So close that machines cannot go in between rows and it has to be 100% hand farmed. Being in such close proximity, each vine must compete for water and nutrients, which causes the berries to be smaller with more intense flavors.
