After purchasing virgin land in a desert consisting of sage brush located on the southwest slopes of what has become recognized as one the world’s great growing regions, Keith and ReNae began development of their Red Mountain vineyard and winery in early 1993. Terra Blanca crushed their first grapes in the autumn of ‘93 with purchased fruit and crushed the first estate grapes in the fall of ‘97. Currently, Terra Blanca has over 115 acres of vines in production with more added each year. Terra Blanca is Latin for “white earth,” which signifies the white carbonate-rich soils in its estate vineyard. The high-mineral, high-carbonate soils, coupled with the warm, dry and breezy southwest exposure allows Terra Blanca’s vineyard to produce concentrated grapes with a defined sense of place.
