Vinification

Stolpman created Carbonic Sangiovese in 2013 in an effort to make a fresh, delicious version of Sangiovese.  Sangiovese as a grape, is both highly tannic and high in acid – a one-two combination that can deliver a whopping blow to the palate.  Carbonic Fermentation is where the grapes to ferment whole, uncrushed in a sealed tank. The primary benefit if this fermentation style is that it make a red wine that contains only a fraction of the tannins than one that was traditionally fermented.  

Whole Cluster, native yeast Carbonic Fermentation followed by 3 months in neutral French barrels.

Recommended to e served chilled.

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Red notes of fresh-picked, juicy cherry and berry ride high over ruby grapefruit and zesty tangerine.  

Don’t forget to drink it cold, during the day (or all night with most any cuisine), and don’t be caught with just one bottle in the cooler – it will be empty in a flash and your guests will demand more!

Winery Description

Leading Syrah Producer of Ballard Canyon AVA

Over 20 years ago, Thomas Stolpman, discovered what many might describe as one of the greatest viticultural sites on earth. Hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast, on a rare Limestone outcropping & unobstructed from the Pacific Ocean wind, this unique land is ideally suited to grow Syrah and Roussanne grapes. Stolpman is committed to preserving this natural environment for thier vines through natural farming, dry farming, & sustainable employment. In the winery, they prefer native fermentation & minimal manipulation.


Dedicated to sensible farming & winemaking, they believe that they can create natural, vibrant, site-specific wines, with a focus unique to Ballard Canyon AVA, California. Their 220-acre property, of which 153 acres are currently planted to grapes, lies on three major limestone ridgelines in Santa Barbara County. By implementing revolutionary viticultural techniques, they push the dry-farmed limestone vines to unprecedented levels of quality.
