CP ChardThis young and expressive Chardonnay displays a balance of perfume, baked apple and soft white flowers in the bouquet. With time in the glass, more complex pear, white peach, cream and baking spices emerge. Bright acidity, and youthful roasted oak flavors indicate this wine will evolve nicely over the next 2-3 years. Made from 20% Trestle Vineyard New French Oak and barrel fermented for eight months.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

CP Cab
This ruby red Cabernet Sauvignon shows enticing fruit forward aromas of bing cherry, boysenberry and a hint of sage. On the palate, this medium bodied wine has layered flavors of black fruit and spice that finish with lean, soft tannins. This lighter style Cabernet is ready to drink now and would best pair with grilled red meat.

Cal Poly Wine

Cal Poly wine is produced by Cal Poly students under the mentorship of the Wine and Viticulture department instructors. The Learn by Doing philosophy is embraced in this process as students are responsible for the production of wine from vineyard to bottle.

The majority of the grapes for the program are sourced from the Trestle Vineyard, located on Cal Poly campus. This student-managed, 12.5-acre vineyard is planted to chardonnay, pinot noir, syrah and tempranillo. Additional grapes are donated from commercial vineyards around San Luis Obispo County.

The wine is currently being produced at Orcutt Road Cellars. This wine industry, co-op facility is conveniently located near Cal Poly University. Here student winemakers engage with other local winemakers and are involved in the entire winemaking process.

Cal Poly Student Winemakers: 

    • 2014 – Alec Perrucci & Kenny Strauss
    • 2013 – Kelly Allyn, Ella Johnson & Erik Knapp
    • 2012 – Clay Boydston & Jordan Crabtree
    • 2009 – Erich Fleck and Charley Johnson
    • 2010 – Tom Schmidt & Adam Johnson
    • 2008 – Michael Horton
    • 2007 – Michael Bruzus & Nicole Chamberlain
    • 2006 – Kathryn Allegra & Luke Holcombe

Since 1901 Cal Poly has been committed to educational excellence and a Learn by Doing philosophy. We are proud to present this premier wine, representing a collaborative effort by viticulture, enology, and wine business students in the Cal Poly Wine and Viticulture Department. The rich character of this wine reflects Cal Poly's commitment to excellence and the exceptional growing conditions of San Luis Obispo, California.
