The vineyard blocks are vigilantly maintained and viticultural practices are tailored to each vine's specific requirements. The vines are spur pruned and trellised according to a modified VSP system. Sustainable methods are practiced such as deficit irrigation, cover cropping, shoot thinning and cluster removal. The vineyard consists of a distinct and exceptional soil that was recognised by the US Geological survey in 1946. The "Lockwood Shaly Loam" is comprised of crushed fossilised seashells, similar to chalk and limestone and is only found in two small areas of Central California, adding an exclusive character to the premium wines. Dramatic shifts in temperature from day to night create ideal conditions for concentrating the flavours in the berries.

First released in 1989, Lockwood Vineyard was developed under the belief that world class estate produced wines are attainable through ideal vineyard location and quality winemaking. Lockwood Vineyard's founders, Paul Toeppen, Phil Johnson and Butch
Lindley, who have cumulative vineyard management experience of over 90 years, first planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area
nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, and is one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world. Under the new ownership of Boisset Family Estates, Lockwood Vineyard continues to be devoted to producing high
quality estate grown wines.
