Founded over 20 years ago by Tom Stolpman when he discovered hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast a rare limestone outcropping unobstructed from the Pacific Ocean wind which became part of the now famous Ballard Canyon AVA. The winery is currently run by son Pete Stolpman and his wife Jessica. Known for employing their own crew "La Quadrilla", the vineyards are maintained only by hand with care and dedication.
This bottle takes inspiration from Maria Solorzano for whom this bottle is named. She is said to have the most passionate vineyard team in the world. The label is a “tecolote,” Spanish for night owl, drawing inspiration from the late night drinking parties of her hometown in Jalisco. The team also turns into night owls during harvest, picking fruit when the night air is cool. To tie it together, the female Great Horned Owl is the best source for rodent control in the vineyard. Maria is here in this wine.
