Wine Tasting in Steinbeck
New shoots reaching for the light, growing at a very rapid pace in April and May.
Pruned and unpruned vines

Maria pulling leaves
Workers hand pick about 50% of our crop each year. While the workers pick and dump fruit into these 1,000 pound boxes, a worker standing at each box pulls leaves out.
Pouring Steinbeck Wines
A grafted vine
Nurseries graft the vines onto "rootstock." The image is clear! Christ, the true vine, is our holy root; we are the branches. Life is lived IN him, here and for all eternity which is now in him!
Sap flowing from a pruned vine
Look closely at the three drips of sap flowing from the wound. Peter said, "by his wounds we have been healed." 1 Peter 2:24
Bud Break & Sap Flow
Sap flows from the would made by pruning, aiding the scab formation. Tiny little buds are unfolding, which will be the canes bearing fruit for the season.

Row 124 - the leaving place
Rocks left in Row 124 represent one of the greatest challenges we face - casting our cares/burdens on Jesus. We feel we need to be tough, to carry our own stuff or worse yet, punish ourself for even having burdens, or worse yet, pretending we don't have burdens. Leaving our stuff leaves room for growth.

Look closely at the tree, upper left - see the heart! Mom and Dad 55 years!
Steinbeck Guest House
Tucked in the middle of Steinbeck Vineyards, the Steinbeck Guest House is a beautiful resting place. 3 bedroom, 2 bath, fully equipped kitchen, fire pit and bbq. Very comfortable!
Planted in 2007 in memory of Hazel (Ernst) Steinbeck, Howie's mom, this little oak struggles to live and grow in the harsh conditions on top of Grandma's hill.
Oak Tree on Grandma's hill
This giant oak has been standing here for perhaps 300 years. Look closely for the heart in the tree!
This beautiful barn was built in 1921 by Howie's grandparents. Restoration began in 2006 with the founding of our Heritage Club. Generous friends and family donated funds to help restore the barn.
Steinbeck Wine Label
We produce 1,200 cases of premium wines from our vineyard - Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Viognier, Zinfandel and two blends, The Crash and Voice. The remainder of the fruit grown on Steinbeck Vineyards is sold to large local wineries.
