Where the foothills rise up from the valley floor on the Santa Maria Bench sits Cambria Estate Winery. Family-owned, sustainably-farmed, and passionately tended by a team proud to be stewards of this remarkable property, each wine bearing the Cambria name is grown, produced and bottled on the estate.
Katie Jackson’s namesake vineyard is planted in shallow sand and granite, draining away moisture and restricting vine vigor, forcing the vines to draw nourishment to the fruit, creating full ripeness and balanced acidity. The Benchbreak Chardonnay all comes from this vineyard, where 34 blocks are made up of both old and new clones.
