The Stolpman winery has one of the most prized vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. Their warm days, cool nights and limestone-rich soils make this property similar to parts of France's Rhone Valley. Their dedication to high-quality fruit has been noticed and the fruit utilized by some of the best wineries in California, such as Sine Qua Non, Ojai, Jaffurs and Andrew Murray.

With 18 acres of Roussanne, Stolpman Vineyards accounts for over 5% of planted acreage of the grape in California. The notoriously late-ripening, sluggish varietal is perfectly suited to Stolpman's Ballard Canyon site. Low humidity and high afternoon winds blowing off the Pacific combine to prevent fungal issues that plague the grape in Europe and other wetter regions. Intense, late season, Southern Latitude Sun; the Roussanne tans to its beautiful namesake "Rousse" - or rust color. Stolpman's experienced crew, La Cuadrilla, hand plucks every leaf away from the fruit through the early summer and then rotates each cluster once one side turns golden – usually in early September. Only evenly tanned fruit is then visually selected during multiple hand-harvesting passes.
