The story of the winery began a long time before it was established when its owners John and Sofia met each other online. Small talks grew into relationship. Relationship grew into marriage and business partnership. Living the American dream- starting in the garage with electronic components start-up that grew, and years later – big happy family with 4 kids. Their appreciation of wine (magic of California’s wine country), turned into a wine business proposition -with much excitement and support of family, friends and coworkers. After the years of studying and hard work by its owners, the winery work begins, supporting premier wine making traditions in Santa Clara Valley. This was the first premier wine production region in California, with history of wine making going as far back as 1777 .
The 56 acre Big Oak Ranch, perched on the east foothills of Morgan Hill is home to our developing vineyards. It also hosts horse boarding facility. This ancient landslide land is perfect for both red and white varietals. With its microclimate, rich soil and elevation up to 900 feet, it is a perfect picturesque setting for high quality grapes, within the boundaries of Silicon Valley and Central Coast AVA.
Our winery and tasting room is located 3 miles away in an urban setting in a large manufacturing facility at 900 Lightpost Way in Morgan Hill, Ca.
Winery tasting room provides easy access for local residents and visitors- it is conveniently located right off Hwy 101 Cochrane exit.
We produce ultra-premium wines offering Rhone-style, Bordeaux style blends, and single varietal wines made from Central Coast grapes, that takes you on a wine journey from Santa Clara Valley -to Santa Lucia Highlands- to Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande.
All of the wines are aged in French oak barrels under the watchful eye of our celebrated French winemaker Christian Roguenant and Russian winemaker Sofia, both working in unison to strive to bring out their unique character. While exceptional wines is our goal, we all agree that it is all about people!
Simple motto: “If you like it- drink it!”
Wine tells the story. Wine helps people to tell their stories.
