The vineyards at the Stolpman estate enjoy the warm days and cool nights of Ballard Canyon, which lies 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara County, on California’s Central Coast. The combination of climate, southern exposure, and limestone soils makes for a unique terroir suited to growing Syrah, Sangiovese, and Roussanne. The first vines were planted at Stolpman in 1992 by Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, who continue to farm and develop the 220-acre estate. We are constantly improving our vineyards according to the latest information available about viticultural techniques, technology, vine material and our specific terroir. – Description from iskicm

  • Well, DJ, I like Ojai Vineyard because I like their wines.  Their tasting room is in the town of Ojai south of Santa Barbara.  It is pretty plain jane, although, Ojai is a nice little town.  If you can procure Ojai Vineyards wherever you live, I don't see any particular reason for you to visit the tasting room.  There are no other wineries in th...

  • Stolpman Syrah Angeli 2011


    Best four or five barrels of the year, less oaky than previous vintagesTight and finely focused nose with a mouth watering blend of wild berry fruit, smoke, used wood notes, chocolate and mineral. On entry this brings the power of the Stolpman wines to the table but in a much more elegant and refined way. With exceptional balance layers of cut... Read More

  • Peter Stolpman Hilltop Syrah 2010


    Dark earthy notes on the nose with a base of woodspice and toast supporting big dark fruit, blackberry and vanilla laced, jellied plum fruit. Big and powerful in the mouth, this is rich, chewy wine filled with vanilla and spice notes early on the palate with hazelnut and nutella flavors joining deep boysenberry and blackberry fruit on the palat...
