Think of dolomite as a first cousin of limestone. Technically, dolomite is a carbonate of calcium and magnesium. We don’t have any commercial deposits of dolomite on our mountain vineyard property, but at our winemaking facility site three miles to the north and a thousand feet lower in elevation than our vineyard property, our next-door neighbor is a commercial dolomite quarry. Dolomite can be used in a number of industrial applications and as an additive to potting soil or in your home aquarium, where it acts to lower the acidity in the soil or water. You may also know its namesake in Italy, the Dolomite Alps, which is great for skiing but far too snowy to grow grapes.
The Dolomite Circle’s offer is a delicious medley of Calera wines made from Central Coast grapes, with sometimes a bottle or two of Mt. Harlan wine.
