|Winemaker(s):||Fred Holloway and Kevin Sass|
|Other Details:||A shared dream of producing fine wine and living a quality lifestyle was the inspiration for JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery. Co-proprietors Justin and Deborah Baldwin come from families only once removed from agricultural life. Deborah was born in a rural part of Washington State and Justin's parents were raised on farms in Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Deborah's desire for a cosmopolitan environment led her to a career in mortgage banking in Los Angeles, where she honed her financial and administrative talents. Justin, although raised in San Francisco, knew and admired the former, more rural Napa and developed an interest in wine while working as an international investment banker and entertaining clients.
In 1981, Justin and Deborah Baldwin purchased 160 acres of land in the remote Adelaide Valley west of Paso Robles on California's Central Coast. They also released their first wine, a sparkling Blanc de Noir made from purchased fruit (their vines were not yet mature). In 1982, they planted 72 acres, concentrating on the three classic red Bordeaux grape varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay. Nineteen eighty-five marked construction of the winery and in 1987, their first crush of 100% estate JUSTIN wines.
JUSTIN Vineyards are located in the Central Coast region of California, less than ten miles from the Pacific Ocean with elevations ranging from 1100 to 1800. The property incorporates a total of 160 acres, of which 72 are mostly dry farmed acres planted in full-bodied Bordeaux grape varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and limited of rich Burgundian style Chardonnay. Additionally, Syrah, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Orange Muscat add to the estate vineyard program.
