Camelot Vineyards and Winery was established in 1993 and its wines have been winning awards across the country ever since.
The secret behind these consistent winners is the world-class winegrowing regions of the Central Coast, Lodi and the North Coast of California.
Each of these regions has its own specificities in terms of soil and climate. The Central Coast is marked by alluvial soils and a climate influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Lodi, in the northern tip of the San Joaquin Valley, just east of San Francisco Bay is a where fertile soils begin to make their gentle ascent to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Lodi boasts a classic Mediterranean climate consisting of warm days and cool evenings accented by a gentle maritime wind from the Sacramento River Delta.
North Coast vineyards, situated further inland, benefit from a temperate climate with warm, sunny days resulting in rich ripe fruit.
Winemaker Melissa Bates blends state-of-the-art technology with old-world artisan winemaking techniques to craft an outstanding Merlot that consistently over-delivers on quality. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, this Merlot spends eight months in French and American oak to soften and enrich its lush cherry and dark berry flavors.
