Vineyard Development


We are so pleased that we made the right decision when you came to our ranch and vineyard and that we went with Atlas!  We surely would have regretted if we had made a decision to go with any other vineyard management team.  Atlas and the rest of your crew have always done an incredible job and more than we ever expected.  So we thank you for all that you have done to help us continue to bring in award winning vintages! Thank you again and best wishes for the upcoming holiday season and best regards to your crew and your family!

Bethel Heights

Well-respected and long-established producer of Oregon Pinot Noir.


"This is our third year in a row receiving fruit from Zena Crown.  If last year we were pleased, this year we were doubly pleased. The fruit was fully ripe, required little or no adjustment or manipulation, tasted great as fresh fruit, and shows great promise as a young wine..  In '08 it became an important part of our Casteel Reserve. As always, the Atlas Team is professional and helpful."

Arita Hills Vineyard

Arita Hills had a record breaking harvest that was completed on Tuesday morning with superb support from the team at Atlas Vineyard Management. I have heard nothing but praise about Jim McGarry’s management of the Central Coast team from locals like Richard Sanford and Bryan Babcock, who both purchased fruit from Arita Hills this year. The skill set and professionalism of the Atlas team is certainly improving our vineyard. I appreciated the reference and look forward to Atlas enhancing vineyards throughout our neighborhood.
