Le Mistral Wines
roudly introduces its new sister vineyard, Le Mistral. Founded by Joseph Phelps over ten years ago, this Monterey vineyard is about 10 miles south of the Arroyo Seco in the foot hills outside of King City.
Le Mistral is a blend which includes the major grape varieties, or cépages, that have been grown in the Southern Rhône Valley of France for centuries. These include (but are not limited to) Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. We believe there are remarkable similarities between Monterey, California’s wine growing regions and the Southern Rhône Valley, including the blustery afternoon winds for which this Rhône-style wine is named.
As of the 2007 vintage, Le Mistral wines will be produced and bottled in Monterey by the Le Mistral Vineyard, whose owners have grown the grapes for the highly acclaimed wine for the past eleven years in Monterey County. Phelps winemakers Ashley Hepworth and Damian Parker continue to consult from Napa.
