Graham Tatomer is a rising star winemaker in Santa Barbara County, specialising in the unexpected: Riesling! These are wines for serious Riesling lovers, and this is certainly a winemaker to watch.
92/100 - The 2019 Riesling Vandenberg offers up more of a tropical profile to play off a core of lemon confit, chamomile and white flowers. Rich, creamy and deep, the Vandenburg is a decidedly imposing white. A whole range of savory and earthy undertones linger. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 
92/100 - Graham Tatomer is the regional master of Riesling, and this countywide blend is a great entry point. The ocean is ever-present on the nose, with wave-washed aromas of granite, Meyer lemon peel and lemon oil. The palate is focused on dried citrus peel, with a strong sense of fresh sea spray and funky seashore elements, reminiscent of peat. - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast 


Typically, the selection for Vandenberg are grapes with a higher percentage of Botrytis, or "Noble Rot." The result is a richer more fruit-driven wine. It has more of the stone fruit flavors often associated with Riesling, nice minerality, and some slight botrytis notes often expressed as honey, or pollen.
This wine is a blend of multiple pickings from multiple sites in Santa Barbara County. A majority of the fruit comes from "Kick-on Ranch," while the rest comes from other older vineyards in the area.
Founded in 2008 with two Riesling vineyards, the aim was to create a bone-dry Riesling unlike many of the off-dry examples found nowadays across California.  
Pairs nicely alongside spiced duck leg.  
Can be enjoyed upon release or has ageing potential for 3-5 years.

Graham Tatomer’s career in wine started back in high school and after he worked the holidays at a local winery all the way through college (in Santa Barbara), he decided that he had found his career path. Drawn to the brightness and acidity of the Germanic varieties (especially Riesling), it wasn’t long before Graham sourced fruit from some old... Read More >>
