Part of the Mosby estate located on the hills above the old Adobe. This small vineyard is home to five acres of Nebbiolo vines that Bill planted in 2002. Nebbiolo grapes are fussy, and demand specific conditions and loving care. The vines need the cooling ocean breezes of this vineyard site to thrive, as well as the protection of the vineyard team and local raptors to guard against rodent damage.
The Vigna della Casa Vecchia vineyard is named after the 1853 Adobe where winemaker Bill Mosby and his wife Jeri live. The vineyard, planted by Bill in 1977 and expanded in 1991, is easily seen from highway 101 just South of Buellton, by the Santa Rosa Road exit. The red barn housing the Mosby tasting room is located among these vines, and is a well-known landmark for locals and visitors alike. The unique micro-climate of this location is created by ocean breezes from both Gaviota to the South and Lompoc to the West, with clay loam and shale soils supporting approximately 18 acres of Italian varietals. Sangiovese, Pino Grigio, Sagrantino, and Dolcetto comprise the bulk of the vines in this vineyard.
The 246 vineyard was the first vineyard planted on the Mosby estate, located along the north banks of the Santa Ynez River. The property was acquired in 1963. The flood of 1969 washed away a large chunk of the property. Bill planted a vineyard in 1971 taking advantage of the soil which is predominantly sandy loam. It supports 16 acres of vines.
