2Plank Vineyards is a boutique winery located in San Diego, California, dedicated to producing small volumes of the highest quality of wine. Our vineyard in Fallbrook is located on a mountainside rich with red volcanic soil near the Santa Margarita River gap, which provides the daily maritime breezes necessary for slow fruit maturation. In addition to our Red Mountain vineyard, we also source grapes from some of the finest vineyards in California, to create food-friendly wines that are great for sipping or aging.
Our Red Mountain vineyard in Fallbrook is located in one of the most unique growing regions of San Diego. Our dark, red volcanic soils are similar to the famous terra rossa of the Coonawarra region in Australia.
Planted at an average elevation of 1100 feet, the vineyard is situated near the Santa Margarita River gap, which provides the daily maritime breezes necessary for slow fruit maturation.
This allows the grapes to develop the optimum fruit, acid, and tannin structure necessary to make the highest quality wines. We feel that you can taste the terroir of our Red Mountain vineyard in every bottle.
Growing fruit on Red Mountain can definitely be defined as extreme farming. The topography of our vineyard, including a 15-20% grade and large quantities of volcanic rock, make it impossible to farm with machines, so every square foot of our vineyard is hand-farmed.
This harsh topography also tames the vines , stressing them, pressuring them to send down roots deep into the rocky, fractured substrata. The end result is lower yields of fruit per acre, but the grapes that are harvested are concentrated with flavor. We also favor sustainable farming practices such as hand cultivating and avoiding use of pesticides.
We feel that this hand-crafted approach not only applies in the vineyard, but also in the winery. We are one of the first urban wineries in San Diego, located in the heart of Sorrento Valley.
Our boutique winery is dedicated to producing small volumes of the highest quality wine. In addition to our Red Mountain vineyard, we also source grapes from some of the finest vineyards in California.
We ferment in small lots to extract optimum flavor and color, then age in oak from 12-18 months. We try to intervene as little as possible in the wine aging process, and rather let the quality fruit shine through.
This old-world approach coupled with our new world fruit, produces wines that are ready to drink right out of the gate, but can easily be laid down for years, to enjoy later on. Our wines are both food friendly and great for sipping.
