Framed by the San Raphael Mountains to the east and Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, Happy Canyon is blessed with an extraordinary terroir. It’s sits at the end of a 40 miles geological funnel that draws the cooling Pacific coastal fog inland, which combines with the gravelly soils of the Vogelzang Vineyard to create a mini-nirvana for Sauvignon Blanc.
The finest wine from Vogelzang is produced by the team at Dragonette Cellars who, in the words of Jeb Dunnuck, make “Some of the finest expressions of Sauvignon coming out of the Central Coast today.”
It’s made with a nod to the great Sauvignon Blancs of the world, with fermentation in 228L, 300L and 320L French oak barrels (22% new), and 276L Dagueneau-inspired Cigar barrels. 18 months of the lees bring added layers to a finished wine bright with tension and energy.
