Carr Winery purchases Sauvignon Blanc from Vogelzang Vineyard. This 77 acre vineyard is located in the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara County and was planted in 1998 by Jeff Newton and Ben Merz. This unique area is the perfect growing climate for Bordeaux varietals. Because of its location in the most south-eastern corner of the Santa Ynez Valley, the morning fog burns off earlier than the rest of the valley, providing the much-desired longer day of heat. The late afternoon marine winds quickly cool the area. In addition to the advantage of these weather patterns, the gravelly loam soil is strewn with rock and rubble contributing to the low vigor and proper drainage.
