"Clair de Lune" when translated from its original French means "Light of the Moon".
The late French composer Claude Debussy created a magnificent piano piece, Clair de Lune. It has a beautiful, timeless and enduring quality and consequently was the source of inspiration for naming our vineyard and wines.
Clair de Lune's goal is to create wines of great finesse and elegance that will be enjoyed and celebrated by the wine and food fraternity thereby promoting our future.
Clair de Lune Vineyard and Winery is located not far from the ocean but far enough inland to experience a continental climate ideal for grape-growing.
