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.

DiBruno Bros - Taste of DiBruno

Includes:

  • Mild Abbruzze Sausage - Firm and mild, with hints of garlic and pepper, low air-cured for at least 45 days.​

  • Piave Cheese - Tropically fruity with a bitter almond undercurrent, Piave features a crystalline texture with a buttery mouthfeel. Nutty, fruity, and bold.

  • Port Wine Spread - Pure Wisconsin Cheddar is swirled with sweet Port Wine to create a complex, yet subtle flavor profile that is enjoyed by all. ​

  • Sea Salt Crostini - The extra flavor of sprinkled sea salt fused into our crunchy, twice-baked Crostini, which makes an ideal snack.​

  • Black Lava Cashews - Crunchy cashews candied and dusted with Hawaiian black lava sea salt. Volcanic flavor and intense texture, with the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

The Bryan Titus Trio will perform a 30 minute virtual concert after the tasting.

The Bryan Titus Trio grows up like a weed from a tangled and overgrown history of Bluegrass and American Roots Music. Recently touted as "Postmodern Barn Dance" band they write & perform toe-tapping tunes that evoke themes & melodies of yesterday with a pinch of modern irony. 

Bryan Titus draws heavily on lessons learned on his 2013 Through Hike of Appalachian Trail, especially the music he picked up in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, & Virginia. His vocals are both smooth & rough, his guitar playing simultaneously

elegant & primitive. 

The Trio, comprised of Jeff Kranzler on Upright Bass & Dustin Janson on cajon and vocals, perfectly fills out and enhances each song with highly effective yet simple accompaniment.
