Esser® Vineyards

California Central Coast producers creating award winning wines

Esser Vineyards Varietals

Esser wines are produced from the cool Central Coast Region of California and crafted from sustainably farmed vineyards of Monterey County. These wines express the fruit, the climate, the terroir and water into a poetic expression of flavors long sought by wine connoisseurs from around the globe.

Temperature is critical for the development of flavor, fragrance and acidity – lack of heat and grapes rarely ripen; too much and the acidity, delicacy and the long lasting qualities of the grapes expressed in the finished wine are lost. Esser wines benefit from the daily cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean, creating flavorful and expressive varietals with complexity, finesse and balance. The selective vineyard sites span from the north of the Salinas Valley Riverview (Region 1) and Viento (Region 2) to the south of San Lucas (Region 3) and Hames Valley (Region 4), just north of the San Louis Obispo County line.

The grapes are processed expeditiously in the modern winery facility in Greenfield, the center of their vineyard holding. After blending the Best of the Best, the finished wine is transported in temperature controlled trucks to southern Napa for bottling, followed by aging in temperature controlled warehouse facilities of the Napa Valley.

Manfred Esser worked in the California wine industry for almost 30 years. In 2003, he began producing the eponymous Esser Wines and the tradition of continually producing quality, value driven wines continues as a cornerstone of our Monterey wines today.

Under the new ownership and with a team of seasoned professionals, Esser Vineyards is positioned as one of the premium Central Coast producers creating award winning Sauvignon Blanc , Chardonnay , Pinot Noir , Merlot , and Cabernet Sauvignon. Esser wines offer Old World elegance, and express terroir as well as exceptional varietal character.
