Our Grapes 

The first Vineyard was planted on its own roots in 1999 with a 10' by 10' spacing and is head pruned.   We started with four acres of Heirloom Zinfandel from cutting dating back to the mid-1890's.   Our climate and soil has proven to be ideal for premium wine grapes which produce full bodied wines filled with wild strawberry, raspberry and just a hint of mint on the palate.   


Soil/Terroir

13 Acres of Sustainably Grown Premium Wine Grapes from Southern Monterey County

Our History

Wellong Vineyards is located on a hillside in beautiful South Monterey County, at a site where a historical adobe called the Aloha Estate, circa 1890, once stood.   A wildfire took all but the foundation and ruins are still visible.   A sea captain named this estate after a mountain visible in the distance that reminded him of his beloved Diamond Head in Hawaii.  ​
