Aequorea Wines

Aequorea (Latin for ‘of the sea’) began as a pilgrimage out to the westward side of the Santa Lucia Mountains and the coastal plains, into vineyards farther west than any other sites on the Central Coast. Working closely with growers who possess a shared passion for farming sites this close to the Pacific Ocean, we focus on single-vineyard Pinot Noir and aromatic whites, producing wines that are transparent of their terroir and the extremity of where they lie. All of the vineyards are no more than 6 miles from the ocean, blanketed by a thick marine layer in the summer which recedes each afternoon as the cool breezes arrive off the Pacific.
