Our Mourvedre is grown near Merlot Mesa in the back of our vineyard. This Mourvedre was barrel selected and aged primarily in French Oak. This varietal can be difficult to grow, preferring "It's face in the sun and feet in the water", meaning it needs warm weather, low leaf-to-fruit ratio and adequate water to produce the desired characteristics of Mourvedre. 

At about 1.5 acres Mourvèdre is one of our smallest blocks in the vineyard. This grape is used to make small amounts of Mourvèdre wine and is the “M” in our GSM red wine blend.

Block 14- Planted in 2002 just above the Merlot, about half of this block was later grafted to Malbec. Mourvèdre is one of the last grapes to bud and is also one of the last grapes to be harvested each year.

WINEMAKER - Kestutis Vizgirda

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the true secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That's why throughout the growing season you will find him touring the rows of varietals and envisioning the kinds of wines he will produce from the harvest.  For over two decades, Vizgirda has worked at several local wineries, working with some of the Valley's best winemakers to refine his craft. Today, he has developed his own unique approach to making wine and has won gold medals for several of his varietals.

In addition to serving as Wilson Creek's Winemaker, Vizgirda teaches wine classes at Mt. San Jacinto College and San Diego State University Extended Studies campus. He is also a judge at several local and international wine competitions.


Wine Server May's Favorite Pick: "I like to call this the 'Move Over Dear!' It's a light bodied red that is fruit forward with a smooth finish. I love it because it's versatile and can be paired with salmon, beef, or pork"
