Our goal is to produce full-bodied, vineyard-driven wines that are true to their varietal character.  Although the current industry trend is to move toward lighter, “easy-drinking” wines, there is still a place in our hearts for big, full-bodied red wines! This is a goal,  but not always the end result. Tradition and dogma are important, but so are innovation, creativity, and variety. We are still waiting to see what the “previously-avocado-grove” terroir produces in the long run, but the aim to produce enjoyable and hopefully complex wines from great grapes grown with TLC.

Rules? Who needs rules? Weather and other factors are usually beyond our  control, so we work with what he have! It’s definitely a work in progress and we hope you get a chance to share in the “fruits” of our labors. Cheers!

Overlooking the beautiful Highland Valley of Ramona there are about 4 acres of grapes that enjoy the breeze, which blows most of the day. The Aglianico grape, (pronounced “A-yah-nee-ko”), originated from the word Hellenic, Ellenico in Italian, means, “from Greece.” Around the 1500ad its name transformed to Aglianico. In Italy, Aglianico is considered the Barolo of the south. Our Aglianico grapes were first planted in early 2007. Approximately, 2000 vines were planted both on the east and west sides of the vineyard. Followed, was the Nebbiolo, planted only on the east side. In 2008 and 2011 we added the Aleatico grapes. We produce two kinds of wines from this grape: a dry wine and sweet dessert wine, both with incredible aromas. Wikipedia claims that, “Aleatico may very well be the most ancient wine grape.” Before the Romans times, the Greek settlers brought the first Aglianico grapes to Naples, Italy (Nea Polis or New City). From there, because of its particular characteristics, the Romans adopted the grape to make the very first commercial wine, the Falerno and exported it in the whole Roman world. Recent studies that were made on the skin of the Aglianico grapes, have shown unique preserving capabilities. The Nebbiolo is a grape mostly grown in the northern Italian region of Piemonte. From the Nebbiolo grapes, the Barolo wine is made and it is one of the most coveted Italian wines.
We are open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from Noon to Sunset.

Toasted Oak Winery is a mom and pop operation that began as a retirement hobby. Roger and Marcia bought the burned-out parcel that would become their vineyard in 2008, naming their future winery after the one surviving tree on the property, a “toasted” oak tree. Nine years later, after clearing, planting the vines, and building the winery, they were able to open their tasting room for business.

We are open for outdoor tastings on our patio Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1:00 to 6:00 pm. You’re welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy with the wine!
