Whalebone Vineyard and Winery started with the bones and a homemade wine called BOB WINE. Through a process that was more whimsical and meandering rather than purposeful, a colorful History has evolved, on this coastal cattle ranch in the Santa Lucia Mountains not far from Hearst Castle. The surprisingly wonderful fruit and wine produced from vines growing on a rocky hillside led to more ambitious plans, coming to fruition over a decade later with the first Vintage of Whalebone Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Tasting Barn (winery-tasting room) was completed in the spring of 2007. We now offer our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, BOB WINE (our cult favorite cab blend), Zinfandel and our Ballena Blanca ( White Rhone Blend).
