Travel up the quarter mile long, gently winding driveway to the main house, lined with over seventy Cyprus trees, growing at least twenty feet tall.

The Aterno Estate boast rolling slopes, broad terraces and loamy soil with spots of calcareous rock create the ideal condition for good grapes here. Good fruit is also largely due to the Templeton Gap, which is defined by it’s cooler nights produced by the ocean breeze that is blown in through the gap in the ridge line. The fog from the coast travels in during the evening and early morning, creating a pronounced marine influence that enhances the grapes, and then burns off during the day to let the warm sun in.
There is no better way to greet the day! A large patio table that seats six is perfect for sunset dinners on the terrace. Open a bottle of wine, spend quality time with friends and family, and take in the beautiful countryside. Cheers to the perfect wine country getaway!
