Albertina Wine Cellars is a boutique winery specializing in ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines made from mountain grapes. The current production is less than 1500 cases per year with plans to increase production ultimately to 3000 cases per year.
The vineyard is on the north side of the mountain slope, offering a unique terroir and microclimate with warm days and cool nights. Afternoon summer breezes cool the vineyard; the peak afternoon temperatures are 3 to 5 degrees cooler than the valley floor. The degree-days of the vineyard is 3200, in Region 3 of the grape-growing classified areas in California, ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil in the vineyard is red loam, about 3' to 6' deep, over fractured sandstone. It is well drained, with low to moderate fertility. Soil tests performed have shown good humus levels and sufficient levels of natural nitrogen and potassium. The phosphorus levels are a little low but are supplemented with rock phosphorus and wood ashes.
