When he founded Adelaida Cellars in 1981, Le Cuvier was little more
than a seed planted in the back of winemaker John Munch’s mind. But
when Adelaida joined into partnership in the early 1990s, Munch saw
the opportunity to begin creating his own Central Coast label. Although
he stayed on at Adelaida until 1999, Munch now devotes his attention
to the day to day details of his boutique operation. From the French
for, "little barrel room," this tiny winery is appropriately named.
Annual production from the cult winery is little more than 1,500 cases.
However, with fine vineyard holdings, Munch manages to turn out a variety
of styles, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay.
