Just south of Hollister and originally part of Monterey County, San Benito County is home to the United States’
largest stretch of limestone soils for viticulture. One of the oldest and most storied winemaking regions in
California, its full potential for fine winemaking still remains largely untapped. San Benito is arguably the
best-kept winegrowing secret in California. Paicines is a complex network of winding corridors and valleys running
along the Gabilan Mountain Range.
