Specializing in Burgundian and Rhone style wines from select Coastal vineyards, Pelican Ranch is a family owned and operated winery in the heart of Capitola. The winery itself is just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay which provides a constant, cool, coastal influence that allows for the making of fine elegant wines.
Our winemaking approach emphasizes proven old-world methods accompanied by successful modern strategies. This combination results in elegant and flavorful wines, which are bottled with minimal cellar treatment. Each vineyard select bottling is limited to 200 cases. The white wines are barrel fermented exclusively in French Oak; the reds are aged for 12-24 months and are bottled with minimal treatment. High profile vineyards from the Santa Cruz Mountains and beyond are the source of the twenty wines we make each vintage.
