Topa Mountain Winery

Situated under the watchful eye of the Topa Mountain range in the Upper Ojai Valley, surrounded by ancient oaks and majestic redwoods. The winery showcases exceptional wines made from new varietal plantings to the Ojai region, such as Barbera, Tempranillo, Carmenere and Touriga Nacionale. Others have long thrived in the region, including Syrah, Grenache and Viognier.

 

All of their wine is produced using techniques designed to reveal the flavors inherent in each varietal, as developed by the unique climate and terroir of their vineyards. They are aged in a mix of old and new French oak barrels, then carefully monitored and bottled under strict standards.
