Coral Mustang

As the Winemaker and co-owner, I would like to welcome you to Coral Mustang Wines.
Together, with my husband Frank, we started Coral Mustang™ in the fall of 2005. We love travel, good food, and of course, great wine. During a visit to Spain — one of our favorite countries — we learned how perfect and versatile the Tempranillo grape is for producing world class wine.

As the winemaker Penelope Gadd-Coster's mission is unique in producing only Tempranillo wines from select vineyards. This noble grape varietal from Spain, produces world class wine suitable with a wide variety of food pairings. Coral Mustang are making single vineyard designated Tempranillo as barrel-aged and Rosé wines.

Castello Di Amorosa

This is one of Napa's most memorable wineries - and the newest. It took more than half a decade to build and involved hand masonry by Italian artisans. Why? Because Castello is truly a castle. A Medieval, stone castle.... with a moat!

Ancient Peaks Winery

Ancient Peaks Winery Vineyard stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked beneath the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Here, the vines unfold along a rare array of soils amid one of the region’s coolest growing environments. The resulting wines express an unmistakable sense of place, with balanced structure and flavors that are native to Margarita Vineyard.

Scheid Vineyards - Greenfield

Al Scheid set his roots in Monterey County in 1972. Al has said if he had every planned to build a family winery it never would have happened. Instead, by his entrepreneurial spirit, skills at building relationships and a lot of hard work today it has become just that. Enjoy the passion and heart in this wineries wines.

Bassetti Vineyards

Neil Bassetti Vineyards is a family owned company that brings you the boldest and richest wine traditions of California. Neil Bassetti Vineyards has a long history dating back to 1958 where Neil Bassetti started in the farming business of the Central Coast area. Today and every day Neil tends to the vineyards personally to ensure constant attention to the vineyard to maintain a generous annual yield.

He still continues to follow family traditions. There's always plenty of food to eat after a long day's hard work. Whether it may be a celebration or family dinner, Neil preaches to bestow a bottle of wine as the salvation for anything and everything. Whether it be over dinner, a gift, or a toast at a very special occasion, we hope you enjoy a glass as much as we do.

You have only so many bottles in your life, never drink a bad one.

Vina Castellano

Longtime Placer County residents, the Mendez Family, broke ground on their Auburn vineyard in 1999, with no illusions of simplicity. When Viña Castellano was started the family knew it was going to be a labor of love, with a strong emphasis on “labor”. Teena Wilkins, who co-owns and manages the vineyard and winery, is the youngest of Gabe and Carolyn Mendez’s four children. She and her father, along with her husband Craig and their vineyard & winery foreman, Victor Brambila, oversee the weekly work at the winery, but the entire family contribute to the winery in some form or fashion.

Fenton Herriott Vineyards

Fenton Herriott Vineyards is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills at the gateway to Apple Hill, and is situated on what was once the old Pony Express Route and resides just 1/2 mile from the Smith Flat house. This region has a vibrant prospecting history, and is just a short distance from the gold mining towns of Coloma and Sutter's Mill.

The Sierra Nevada foothills has been used for farming for well over 100 years. The Mediterranean climate of this area combining warm summer nights and hot summer days with free-draining volcanic soils is especially ideal for grape growing and allows us to produce the quality fruit needed for our complex, delicately-balanced and full-bodied wines.
As a small, family owned winery, Fenton Herriott is intimately involved in every part of the vintner process - vineyard and vine maintenance, grape crush, fermentation, barrel ageing, bottling, and packaging.

Carica

Since its founding in 2005, Carica Wines has stayed true to its vision. Producing small lots of single-vineyard designated wines, Carica makes Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Sauvignon Blanc. In addition, Carica Wines produces a Rhône-style red blend, combining Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. Winemaker Charlie Dollbaum has also added a Rosé to the Carica portfolio.Carica Wines is a new winery started in 2005 by two friends, Dick Keenan and Charlie Dollbaum, to produce small lots of premium Sonoma County wines. They produce 2 wines for now. A Sauvignon Blanc and the kick ranch Syrah.

The Syrah is very balanced. Very nice ruby red color. It has a very long finish of dark chocolate, pepper and smoked meat. Big rich dishes would benefit from this wine. I will be excited to try there Sauvignon Blanc when it comes in. After all it is one of my favorite Varietals.

Rideau Vineyards

Rideau Vineyard was founded in 1997 by New Orleans native, Iris Rideau. Early on in the winery’s inception, Iris Rideau decided to dedicate her estate vineyard entirely to Rhône varietals. She felt that Rhône wines were not only ideally suited to the Santa Ynez Valley AVA, but also instinctively felt that they were best suited to the Creole cuisine of her childhood.
