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

    Full malo 100% new oak, 100% Roussanne fermented in new woodSort of tropical on the nose with a bit of guava floating around here which is joined by smoky oak, polleny floral notes, with hints of tobacco and deep ripe pineapple base note.

    No malo all SSSame as rose big crop gave them fruit to work with,Jasmine and mineral laced on the nose which picks up minty, spicy, peach tinged fruit.

  • Stolpman Rose 2012


    Second or third time doing it, 2012 was a high yielding vintage, 60 Grenache, 40% Sangiovese, three day carbonic then whole cluster,Spicy on the nose with lime and herbs and a hint of camphor. This is fruity on the front end, then mineral, dry and really crisp with superb acids. Its light bodied yet nicely firm with fine strawberry fruit with a ... Read More

  • Palmina Nebbiolo 2007


    Sisquoc and Stolpman VineyardsRoses and a hint of terpene top sandy soil tones on the nose hear, joined with a touch of bookbinders glue and minty, green herbal overtone over wild cherry and lingonberry fruit. This is only modestly tannic, though the tannins are dry and refreshingly austere supporting clear, savory and earthy wild cherry fruit t... Read More

  • I did some random research today, or just internet wine travels that somehow led me to Valtellina, a place that I might have briefly heard about in the past but didn't really resonate. Anyway, it's a very cool climate, with some of the best wines grown in high altitudes that are run by families, not corporations. As far as producers go, one that... Read More

  • Stolpman Grenache Santa Ynez Valley 2011


    Picked in Nov, 33% whole clusterFirst vintage 2006, grown for close to 20 years but never fermented it by itself,Mineral, even a bit steely on the nose which shows a red fruit profile with mild intensity over a savory base. This is quite big on entry, packed with savory tannins up front followed by rich candied Jolly Rancher raspberry/strawberry... Read More

  • Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?

  • Stolpman Vineyards la Coppa Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2009


    Pretty, almost golden color in the glass. Very big nose--the Viognier (30%) really pounds through--flowery, tropical fruity. On the palate, again the Viognier comes through--some melon hints, some spicy hints, some mineral hints. Very pleasing tartness brings lemony hints. I am looking forward to having this wine with a grilled halibut fille... Read More
