Visit our Estate 37700 Foothill Road Soledad, CA 93960 © 2017 Hahn Family Wines Lucienne Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs Long ago, Nicolaus "Nicky" Hahn set his sights on producing wines of distinction from Monterey County. At the time, the eastern slope of the Santa Lucia Mountains was unknown but with its well-drained soils, Pacific winds and fog, and warm summer days, it was a clear bet that Pinot Noir would grow well. Recognizing the area's unique qualities, Nicky led an effort with other neighbor growers to establish a new appellation and in 1991, Santa Lucia Highlands was born. Now, with our four certified sustainable estate vineyards planted primarily to Pinot Noir, we celebrate Santa Lucia Highlands with carefully crafted, single vineyard selections. Consistently awarded 90 + points, these wines are signature Nicky Hahn. Sometimes, big dreams do come true. In 1980 we had big dreams. Why stop now?
