Nestled in the enchanting space between Laguna Beach and the urban landscape of Orange County lies a winery born from a lifelong passion for the art of winemaking. Founded by the award-winning vintner, J.J. Huber, this winery brilliantly infuses a Canadian urban winery ethos into the art of crushing grapes sourced from Napa and Sonoma Valley. What adds to the winery’s distinctiveness is its adoption of Italian winemaking methods and equipment, resulting in an intriguing blend of cultures that consistently yields exceptional wines. These wines proudly earn medals year after year at the OC Fair Commercial Wine competition.
We eagerly await the opportunity to welcome you, inviting you to relish our meticulously crafted, award-winning wines while immersing yourself in the sounds of Rock ‘n’ Roll music on our impressive 10-foot screen. It’s a unique wine-tasting experience tucked away in the heart of Laguna Beach, California—a hidden gem within Orange County.
Whether you’re planning a corporate gathering or a private event, seeking a delightful daytime wine tasting, or considering joining our esteemed wine club, we invite you to savor the intricate aromas and flavors of our expressive boutique wines.
Continuing his wine science education under the tutelage of UC Davis professor Clark Smith, J.J. Huber’s winemaking style has evolved over the years. Guided by the philosophy that “blending is better,” he has mastered the art of adding intricate layers of complexity to all his wines.
Our team has expanded to include the exceptional talent of Heather Nenow, who brings a wealth of technical knowledge to our winemaking endeavors. Holding a Master’s degree in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis, Heather now oversees the entire winemaking program, infusing it with her expertise and passion.
In addition, a longtime friend, John Rider, has become an integral part of our team. John has assumed the roles of assistant winemaker and operations director, contributing his wealth of experience and dedication to our winemaking journey.
