Available Varietals & Blends
Based in the Santa Cruz, California wine region, we have access to some of the most distinctive grapes in the world. We source ours from central coast viticulturists (grape-growers) dedicated to meticulous farming practices.
We believe that wines should be an honest representation of the time and place where the grapes were harvested. Our wines are made with grapes harvested at a lower brix level, resulting in lower alcohol wines, and rely solely on wild, native yeast to facilitate fermentation, rather than using commercial yeast preferred by most winemakers. The result is truly complex and distinctive wines that showcase the subtle changes in the grapes of each vintage.
As an urban winery, we’re not limited in the grapes we use. We often experiment with different taste profiles while remaining true to Old World styles. Visit us again to discover something new.
Our white wines include a collection of Chardonnays made from grapes sourced from both the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA and Monterey County AVA. In addition, we make a lovely dry local Pinot Gris and a Sauvignon Blanc hailing from the Paso Robles AVA.
We have two labels we produce our red wines under. Our classic Stockwell Cellars label and the Casa del Herrero label, which in Spanish means house of the blacksmith and pays homage to our winemaker's first craft as a steel fabricator. Between the two labels we produce a large variety of red wines made from grapes sourced from several American Viticulture Areas, including the Santa Cruz Mountains, Monterey, Paso Robles, and Santa Clara Valley.
We look forward to kicking off spring every year with the release of our latest Rosé, Saignée and Orange wines. Our Orange wine is made from the Pinot Grigio grape. We call this wine our Pinot Grigio Ramato; ramato means copper in Italian and refer to this wine's beautiful color. These wines are always a big hit!
