Over 20 years ago, our Founding Partner, Thomas Stolpman, discovered what we believe to be one of the greatest viticulture sites on earth. Hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast, on a rare Limestone outcropping and unobstructed from the Pacific Ocean wind, this unique land is ideally suited to grow Syrah and Roussanne grapes. We are committed to preserving this natural environment for our vines through natural farming, dry farming, and sustainable employment. In the winery, we prefer native fermentation and minimal manipulation.
Dedicated to sensible farming and wine making, we believe that we can create natural, vibrant, site-specific wines, with a focus unique to Ballard Canyon AVA, California.
