About McIntyre Vineyards
McIntyre Estate Vineyard lies in the “sweet spot” of Monterey County’s Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. Originally planted in 1973, the 80-acre site (60 acres planted) boasts some of the Highlands’ oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines.
Proprietor Steve McIntyre is one of the most knowledgeable viticulturists in California. As owner/operator of Monterey Pacific, he farms 16,000 acres in Monterey County.
The McIntyre Estate Vineyard was among the first properties in the Santa Lucia Highlands to be SIP (Sustainability In Practice) Certified.
Named after Steve’s wife Kimberly, this 81-acre Merlot vineyard is located at the foot of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
With degrees in viticulture and enology and a history in SLH that stretches nearly four decades, Steve has a unique perspective on the terroir and wines of this great appellation. He and his wife, Kim, have farmed 12,000 acres in Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco, San Bernabe and Hames Valley.
