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

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.

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.

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