VINEYARDS, WINERY, AND WINE CAVE EVENTS
Founded in 1998, Newport
Beach Vineyards and Winery is one of the Best-Kept Secret destinations
in Orange County, California. We are the first within our appellation
to revitalize the tradition of making wine, well established in Anaheim
at the turn of the nineteenth century. We have over twelve hundred
vines, covering about a third of the property, which produce up to five
tons of high quality red wine grapes. During our annual September
harvest, we pick, crush, and ferment, our grapes to produce a local
favorite award-¬winning Meritage, sounds like heritage, wine. Each
vintage is a blend, using up to five traditional Bordeaux red wine
grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and
Malbec. Summer 2012 marks the release of our first Estate wine using one
hundred percent grapes from our vineyard, cultivated, vinified, and bottled at the winery called: 2010 OC ESTATE, Unobtainium Meritage Red.
