We are a Northern California boutique winery producing small batch single vineyard wines from unique vineyard sites and rare wine grape varietals.

We specialize in Italian varietals including Aglianico, Fiano, Sangiovese and Teroldego, all from single vineyards sourced throughout California.

Old vine vineyards are another area of interest and we offer a Carignane and Petite Sirah both from certified organic old vine vineyards.

Our wines are made utilizing low intervention winemaking practices, minimally processed and handcrafted in-house by us here at the winery.

Wine details are outlined in our fact sheetswine shop and we are active on social media. Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter for the latest.

Tastings by appointment at our production facility in Sonoma County where we look forward to welcoming you to West of Temperance!
