Old Coach Vineyards' name is a historical reference to the overland stagecoach trail that ran through the land where we now grow our grapes. This old coach road was an offshoot of the mid 1800's network of cross country mail lines known at the Butterfield Stage. Connections ran from San Diego's East County desert through the coastal foothills that is now Old Coach Vineyards ... on their way to the Poway Coach Station before continuing South to San Diego or north to Los Angeles. We seek to embrace the deep history of the land in both our wine and label.
Old Coach Vineyards was started in 2003 on the family's private property in Poway, California. Our original vine plantings were conducted in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and are nestled in the hills between Highland Valley and Starvation Mountain at almost 1000 feet above sea level and about 15 miles inland in the upper San Dieguito Watershed. Estate grown varietals include Syrah, Mourvédre, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Viognier, Primitivo, Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Tempranillo & Cabernet Sauvignon. For years the family has made small quantities of excellent micro-boutique style wines and our artisanal vinting involves many family members. In 2007, Old Coach Vineyards began officially operating as a licenced bonded winery with first commercial release in early 2009.
OCV IS GREEN...
At Old Coach Vineyards we take great pride in practicing sustainable vineyard management. We use natural organic fertilizers and water efficient drip irrigation with computerized soil moisture monitoring probes on our estate grown varietals. We refrain from the use of herbicides and pesticides and compost waste and pomace.
Of course the energy to grow grapes naturally comes from the sun, but did you know so does the energy to make our wine? Our winery operations are powered by our own 29.4kW solar array!
