Toucan Wines is our estate micro-winery and 3-1/2 acre vineyard project hidden in the Arroyo Grande Valley foothills. Here we've hand-crafted, estate grown, premium Zinfandel and Petite Sirah wines, as well as old vine Carignane grown in the Evangelho Vineyard.


Small by any standard, our micro-winery has always focused on quality - it’s our limited production and attention to detail that sets our wines apart. Our winery and estate vineyard, located next to our family home, produced full-bodied and richly flavored wines taking full advantage of what our old-clone vines and our microclimate have to offer.


Our first estate release was our 2004 Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, but our winemaking began in 1992 with Zinfandel from the Valley Vista Vineyard.


Our outstanding 2012 estate vintage represents everything we hoped for when beginning this project back in the day. Every wine exceeds our expectation and each is now opening up beautifully. 2012 also represents our last year of “full” production. And the 2013 vintage closes the door on our project, in 2013 we again produced a balanced Reserve Cuvee blend and a small quantity of 2013 Carignane Dessert Wine - both are available now.


Order any mix of 12 bottles and enjoy 30% off our retail pricing through 2017. Orders of less than 12 bottles are billed at the retail price. We’ve closed our online store, so please order directly by calling or emailing me.


Our wines are limited and one of a kind. In 2017, we removed the Toucan Vineyard to allow for more personal time and freedom – as a result, these artisan estate wines will never be produced again. Buy them, savor them with food, and share them with family and friends. To read about our on-going adventure, events, and new releases - please join our newsletter list.
