West of Temperance Winery


John (L) Brian (R) Founders & Winemakers


West of Temperance® is a Northern California boutique winery producing single vineyard wines from rare wine grape varietals and vineyard sites we love.

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 entirely in-house by us here at the winery.

Please visit our online store and fact sheet page for more wine details and follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter for the latest from the field. Sometimes our customers publish wine reviews on CellarTracker©: check em’ out!

Tastings by appointment at our facility in Santa Rosa, California where we look forward to welcoming you to West of Temperance!
