Located in and around the Bradley-Lockwood area at the southernmost tip of Monterey County, the San Antonio Valley AVA is on the verge of adding an exciting, new facet to the wines of Monterey County. Newly designated as an official American Viticultural Area in June of 2007, the San Antonio Valley has lately undergone a long-deferred renaissance as growers and winemakers have come to rediscover the area’s suitability for growing robust, fully mature fruit. Over the last decade, the valley has seen a marked spike in plantings, and a corridor of vineyards has sprung up along Jolon Road. In the process, the Lockwood area has attained a growing reputation for producing intensely flavored, complex wines of the sort more often associated with Paso Robles than with Monterey.
