About Domäne Kreger Vineyards
In 2002, we bought property in Littlerock, CA, on the north slope of the San Gabriel Mountains, at almost 3000 feet elevation. We planted Rioja and Rhone varietals, including 150 vines of Tempranillo, Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre. After sharing our amazing estate wines with friends and family, we were inspired to go from home-winemakers to starting our own winery. We now source grapes from some of the finest vineyards in California.
These grapes were sourced from the Bella Collina Vineyards, in the famed Adelaida district of Paso Robles. The 2013 Tempranillo features dark berry and plum with tobacco and cedar accents and notes of spice on a rich tannic palate. The finish is herbaceous with a polished texture. This is the perfect wine for spicy foods, Mexican, Cajun, or Indian.
This is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 52% Merlot. These grapes were sourced from the El Pomar district of Paso Robles, known for their Bordeaux varietals. Dense ruby/purple with black current and spice, the wine is full-bodied but not over-the-top. It is rich, authoritative, and has a long finish. It pairs well with beef, wild boar, or venison.
Our 2014 Syrah grapes were sourced from a choice, single vineyard in Santa Barbara County. This deep and focused Syrah delivers lush layers of stewed berries, with a silky, lingering finish of blackberry and white pepper. This wine would pair well with Barbecue, lamb, or game birds.
