The majority of wines produced at Cardella Winery are made from grapes that are proprietor grown, with the remainder coming from neighboring ranches, all in the San Joaquin Valley. The owners of these ranches are under strict agreement with the winery allowing them to manipulate the vines in order to achieve maximum quality. The difference in winegrape quality is quite vast as compared to when the vines are traditionally farmed for higher yields. The wines produced at Cardella Winery are aged in oak barrels for ten to twenty months before bottling, and then aged another six months before release. The wines have a solid sense of terroir unique to this area of California, and have earned numerous awards in International wine competitions.
