The wines are grown and made to be expressive, traditional, energetic and unapologetically not “conventionally Californian”, with vibrant fruit, energy, complexity and depth.
Lexington Wine Co brings wines born of high-elevation mountain vineyards in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountain AVA. It is our goal to offer wines that are singularly distinctive and representative of the remote and beautiful land that we farm.
Gist Ranch vineyard, home to Lexington wines, is located on the Pacific Plate in Santa Cruz County at an elevation of 2,400ft. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon vines were planted by the Fogarty family in 2000, and were carefully farmed to establish optimal organic, sustainable farming practices for ten years before our first release in 2011.
Our tasting room is located in downtown Saratoga, in the foothills of Silicon Valley. Here we offer educational wine tasting experiences with knowledgeable staff and frequently the proprietors and winemakers of Mindego Ridge Vineyard and Lexington Wine Co. We accept walk-in visitors and offer a continually changing five-wine flight. Please call in advance to make reservations for groups of six or more.
