Fantastic Rancho Galante

Fantastic Rancho Galante

This fantastic estate has it all! Award winning wines year after year have been presented by this winery, displaying the talents and research of its owners and wine making staff. From the fabulous 2500 sq ft wine cave to the 2200 ft elevation apex overlooking this remarkable property, excellence and grandeur is the key word.Riparian rights, so crucial to the Carmel Valley are one of the many assets of Rancho Galante revealing over 1/2 mile of river frontage. Over 700 acres, including olive groves are suitable for a multitude of endeavors...you choose the road you would like to take. On the upper portions are wonderful homesites that would rival any in California for grandeur, overlooking the beautiful valleys and canyons below that grace the wonderful Carmel Valley. Viewpoints of other major vineyards enhance the 360 degree panorama that epitomizes Rancho Galante. Multiple outbuildings create the ability to house guests, clients, family, staff..........but even further the grounds allow the introduction of major concerts and events comfortably welcoming hundreds of guests. This unique combination of business enterprise and natural beauty make Rancho Galante a jewel in the crown of Carmel Valley properties. The custom crush business returns a generous revenue with the opportunity for increased clientele and further business prospects. The opportunities are boundless for further vineyard expansion, site development, cattle grazing, bed & breakfast, equestrian faciltiies, olive production, or the mere preservation of a remarkable tradition to the Carmel Valley, letting nature play out its role on a grand stage. Galante wines have been named as the 2013 Monterey County Top Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, 2013 Orange County Wine Society Gold Medal winner for Sauvignon Blanc, Bronze Medal winner for Malbec, 2013 Houston International Wine Competition Double Gold Medal for Sauvignon Blanc, Silver Medal for Cabernet Sauvignon, Bronze Medal winner for Petite Sirah, and the San Francisco Chronicle listing for TOP 100 wines of 2013 with their Sauvignon Blanc.Galante Vineyards is located in the coastal mountains of Monterey County. Our 700-acre property ranges from 700 feet to 2200 feet above sea level. Our Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, located at 1800 feet, make them one of the highest vineyards in Monterey County. Grapes grown on our south-facing slopes produce wines of exceptional body and character. Several factors influence the quality of the grapes grown at our vineyards. Due to the extreme daily temperature variations in our Carmel Valley Appellation that can vary 50 to 60 degrees daily, the growing season is very long with harvest normally occurring in late October. This long "hang time" causes the grapes to ripen slowly, intensifying their rich berry flavors. We also thin the crop to an average of two tons per acre providing a low yield of very high quality grapes. We do not use pesticides or herbicides in the vineyards and only irrigate when needed. These methods, and others, combine to produce the highest quality grapes.
