At 160 acres, Loma Seca is a large property. However only 35 acres are planted to vines and the remainder of the property is maintained as natural habitat. So, most of it is rarely seen by our wine tasting visitors. The views near the bottom of the ranch are more intimate and perhaps serene than those from the top of the vineyard. Yet this time of year it is arguably the most scenic portion. That’s why I wanted to share some recent photos of the “Hidden Loma Seca”. Next time you come and visit, besides wine tasting, you are welcome to explore this special part of the ranch.
Poppies and Lupine are amongst the natural habitat.

The path to the lake in its winter/spring green. With early rains and none since, the grass has a chance to grow. Food for the deer, and elk.

The interplay of wind, water, and sunlight provide this natural ballet
