Qupé is dedicated to producing handcrafted Rhône varietals and Chardonnay from California’s Central Coast. We employ traditional winemaking techniques to make wines that are true to type and speak of their vineyard sources. Our goal is to make wines with impeccable balance that can be enjoyed in their youth, yet because of the good acidity from cool vineyard sites can also benefit from ageing. We are committed to sourcing grapes from some of the best and most prestigious vineyards in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

(I'm leaving out Qupe, which has disappointed me recently for other reasons, but isn't overly sweet-tasting.)  This is balanced with tannins, some savory notes of smoky meat, good acid, and still that dark plum/blackberry kind of flavor and smell.  But less of t...

  • Vinovino - that Qupe is pretty good. So is their Viognier. Actually, I think their Viognier is one of the best I've had anywhere - but it's a low bar.As far as the Baga goes, a few years ago I had dinner with Luis Pato, who's kind of like the world ambassador for Baga. It's an interesting grape. Kind of like Bobal or Kadarka or back in the day, ... Read More

  • Qupe Marsanne 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is just an excellent bottle of Santa Ynez Marsanne/Roussanne from Qupe. The nose is very distinctive, floral and reminiscent of freshly peeled clementine. For an '08 white, this is still very much alive and vibrant. Layers of orange zest, orange marmalade, apricot, ripe peach and a touch of salinity mix with medium plus acidity. Read More

  • Qupe has always impressed me with their reasonable pricing.  Lately I've just found the wines a little lackluster.  Maybe I've just gotten spoiled by those Sonoma Syrahs that OT (mostly) turns us onto.  Still, they never make bad wine. I bought some Tensley a couple years ago from WineAccess after all the RP hype.  It was a huge disappointment--...
