Over 20 years ago, founding partner Tom Stolpman discovered what is believed to be one of the greatest viticultural 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 naturally suited to grow Syrah and Roussanne grapes. Stolpman is committed to preserving this natural environment for their vines through conscious farming, dry farming and sustainable employment. In the winery, they prefer native fermentation and minimal manipulation.
Dedicated to sensible farming and winemaking, Stolpman creates vibrant, site-specific wines with a focus unique to Ballard Canyon AVA, California.
