Kick On Ranch vineyards are located on the westernmost tip of Sta. Rita Hills AVA, just west of Los Alamos (Los Alamos village), and have Betteravia sandy loam soil. Tatomar's plots are located on rolling hills facing south-west. By facing this direction, you will be affected by cold winds blowing in from the Pacific Ocean, which will increase hang time and minimize the effects of noble rot. Kick On Ranch bottling uses the best grapes from the vineyard and removes any sunburned or diseased grapes. Then, we do skin contact for several hours. This is the traditional brewing method of Wachau, famous for its Riesling. 2014 was a very warm vintage. It was a very challenging vintage to age the grapes while maintaining acidity, but the result was a very complex and wonderful wine.
