Cinnabar, a family-owned winery since 1981, established its roots in the eastern rim of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the village of Saratoga and Silicon Valley. Sourced from diverse California vineyards, Cinnabar’s wines express a unique sense of place and reflect a commitment to excellence. Each vineyard offers exceptional climates and soils, and is farmed by growers committed to producing the finest grapes in the land. Wines are carefully fermented and aged in a selection of American, French or Hungarian oak barrels, and are characterized by distinct off-the-vine aromas and flavors. The name “Cinnabar” comes from the heart of founder Tom Mudd because he believed the transformation of rainwater into his handcrafted wines was a form of modern alchemy.
