Los Olivos and the wines from Stolpman Vineyards. How giving back to their farm workers has been integral to their growth.

Sitting in the beautiful front yard of Stolpman Vineyard's tasting rooms in Los Olivos, CA with Pete Stolpman, we take some time to learn about the beautiful wines grown in Ballard Canyon and what makes this a perfect location.  Stolpman knows that he could never pull off his huge success without the absolute dedication of his farming family lead by pioneer and rock star vignerons Ruben Solorzano and his wife Maria.  Ruben and Maria hold a very special place in the Stolpman family, and the Stolpman's have a very special collaboration dedicated to the success of the Solorzanos and the success of all of their farmers.We talk about the importance of dry farming in Southerns California, where water is a precious commodity, and how Ruben has actually trained the roots of his vines to go incredibly deep in the limestone for the precious water.  These winemakers are incredibly attentive to organic farming and the natural fermentation process.  Even the stories behind their labels is fantastic!No visit to Stolpman's tasting rooms would be complete without the parade of four legged friends whom accompany Pete from morning to night, shadowing his every move from living room to fields to tasting room!So join us for an informative interview about some incredibly innovative winemaking and a look into what it takes to harvest great wines and great familial relationships with those that help you produce them!www.stolpmanvineyards.comFB and Insta: @stolpmanvineyardsTwitter: @stolpman_wines
