Producing some of the finest examples of California Syrah, this family run estate nestled in the often overlooked Ballard Canyon AVA is must know! Hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast, on a rare Limestone outcropping that enjoys cooler temperatures due to its exposure to the Pacific Ocean wind, this unique land is naturally suited to growing some of the world most beloved grape varietals such as Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, Roussane and Sauvignon Blanc. These wines will equally please both New and Old World palates alike as they offer the rustic charm of the Rhone Valley…Santa Barbara-Style!

Chef Gregg’s delicate yet flavorful farm to table cuisine will be the perfect foil for Stolpman’s complex, terroir driven wines.
