Vinca Minor Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains
Their labels are pieces of art on their own. Vinca Minor is a family project with Jason Edward Charles at the helm of winemaking. Passionate about photography, he travelled the world taking photographs of everything, from street life in Mexico City to the gorgeous Spanish countryside, before discovering the world of wine. After having worked at Chateau Haut Goujon in Lalande de Pomerol, France and Napa’s most renowned wineries, he established Vinca Minor in 2013.
His Pinot Noir comes from a mountain vineyard only 3.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Made in minuscule quantities, it opens up with aromas of crunchy red fruits, dried rose petals, and thyme.
