Acacia Winery

Acacia Winery is located in the Carneros AVA about 2 miles north of the San Pablo Bay. Founded in 1979, the producer was an early leader in single vineyard Pinot Noir. Aside from making some great wines, Acacia has also taken spent considerable energy restoring parts of Carneros to the original marshes. This has done wonders for the wildlife of the region.

Anthony King is the head winemaker and Michael Terrien is the director of wine growing. King and Terrien have 150 acres of estate vineyards at their disposal. King also sources grapes from other growers. He pays meticulous attention to terroir and makes a number of well-received Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. His Pinots tend to be more substantial and fuller-bodied than average. King accomplishes this without sacrificing the inherent grace of the varietal.

The Acacia 2002 Beckstoffer Pinot Noir is an extraordinary, single-vineyard wine from the Carneros AVA. The Beckstoffer Vineyard averages only 1.5 tons per acre, making this a deep, flavorful wine. This is Acacia’s flagship Pinot Noir.

The winery also makes a very well-received Chardonnay. The Acacia 2003 Carneros Chardonnay has a good blend of acidity and body. Seafood pairs nicely with this wine.
