ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
CIMA COLLINA is a small family-owned vineyard and winery that takes great pride in its association with the early history of Carmel Valley. Our tasting room is located in an old creamery constructed by one of the Valley’s early pioneers, William Hatton, in the late 19th century. Some of the earliest Monterey Jack cheese was made here.

Our tasting room has also served as Carmel Valley’s first post office, a stop for the stage to Tassajara Hot Springs, an art gallery, the Iron Kettle restaurant, and most recently the popular Fish House. Our estate vineyard is located about one half mile east of Carmel Valley Village on land that was originally part of another historic ranch owned by the Berta family.

CIMA COLLINA roughly translates to “hill top” and draws its name from the Hill Top ranch owned by the Lumpkin family. The vineyard was planted in 2002 and our first harvest was in 2005. There are approximately 4 acres of Pinot Noir vines and about one half an acre of Pinot Gris. The warm days and cool nights are ideal for nurturing Pinot Noir grapes. Not only the climate, but the soil and the chalk rock contribute to the unique favors of the wines produced from the grapes grown in this region.

CIMA COLLINA also purchases grapes from extraordinary growers – Chardonnay from the Salinas valley and Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. These are carefully hand picked and processed in our winery in Marina with careful attention to extracting the most exquisite flavors for our signature wines.
