Mandolin is a collaboration between veteran winemaker Philip Zorn and longtime wine executive Brent Shortridge. Bringing together their previously established relationships with winegrowers in California's Monterey County, Zorn and Shortridge have created wines that stand out for their balance, finesse and distinct varietal character, as well as their sense of place. Mandolin wines are internationally recognized as outstanding values.

Mandolin currently produces Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, with grapes sourced from Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco and Hames Valley within Monterey County.
