Local wine grape grower purchases new 30-acre vineyard
New vineyard will be known as ‘G3’
– Bill Gibbs, owner of G2 Vineyard and Heart Stone Vineyard in the Willow Creek AVA, just announced the purchase of a new vineyard to be known as “G3.” This 30-acre property, also located in the Willow Creek AVA, is dedicated to growing mostly ultra-premium Bordeaux varietal grapes.
Gibbs’ G2 Vineyard is an ultra-premium grower of Rhone varietals, selling fruit to many of Paso Robles’ premium winemakers. Recently, Jeb Dunnuck awarded 100 point scores to two releases by Saxum, and a release from Turtle Rock; all three of these sourced fruits from Gibbs’ G2 Vineyard.
“I don’t make wine, but I get a lot of joy from the wines that are made with my grapes,” Gibbs said, “We strive to produce the highest quality grapes possible, grapes that speak to their locale and terroir.”
Gibbs says he is looking forward to the 2022 vintage from this new acquisition.
