NEWS & EVENTS
The Hagan Vineyard perches high above the edge of the continent fully facing the cold Pacific Ocean on the esteemed Taylor Lane west of Occidental. Dramatic, awe-inspiring and windswept, it produces wines of extraordinary complexity and perfume. Red Car leased this twelve-acre site in 2011. We made a thirty-year commitment and are proud to have utilized organic farming practices from the beginning. Along the tiny ridgeline of Taylor Lane are some of the most revered Pinot Noir vineyards in the country, including Summa Vineyard (the plot that put cool climate California Pinot Noir on the world map), Theiriot Vineyard from Littorai, and Evening Land’s Occidental Vineyard. Here, at the end of the road just past these revered sites, lies our newest estate property.
