Vogelzang Vineyard is planted in the newly acquired appellation of Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara. This unique area has proven to show site specificity for Bordeaux varietals. Because of its location in the most south-eastern corner of the Santa Ynez valley, the morning fog burns off earlier than the rest of the valley, providing the much-desired longer day of heat. The late afternoon "set your clock at 4 PM" marine winds quickly promise to ease the extended heat. In addition to the advantage of these weather patterns, the gravely loam soil is strewn with rock and rubble contributing to the low vigor and proper drainage.
