At Tolosa, we say that our wines are "honest to the grape." That's because we don't manipulate the flavors of our wines. Each of our estate-picked, estate-bottled grapes is free to express its natural flavor. The result is full-bodied, drinkable wines with big flavors. Located on the Central Coast of California, on the beautiful Edna Ranch in San Luis Obispo, Tolosa's commitment to award-winning wine is why we're growing expectations every year.

2004 Tolosa 1772 Syrah
Edna Valley

A saturated blue-black color in the glass, the aromas remind us of black pepper-rubbed salumi, gunpowder, and star anise. A dry herb and floral quality continues in the mouth, with ... more lavender, chamomile, and sage balancing the big blueberry and blackcurrant fruit. We’ve watched this wine evolve in barrel and bottle, developing delicious nuances slowly over time. We anticipate more of these revelations, in the glass and in the cellar, over the next several years.

2005 Central Coast Tolosa Pinot Noir
Central Coast

Pleasure was always the goal as we crafted the 2005 Central Coast Pinot Noir. A pure, feminine expression of the Pinot Noir grape, it shows an intense floral perfume, bright red-be ... morerry fruit, and spicy accents of citrus peel & cardamom pod. We look forward to the evolution of this wine over the next 14-20 months. Pair it with paella, spicy Indian curry, or a soba noodle and sAeared ahi salad.

2005 Tolosa Pinot Noir
Edna Valley

The color is dark ruby red without being inky or overly dense. A jammy red berry tone announces the aroma and is then backed up by many layers of complex undertones: cinnamon, tea ... moreleaf, bergamot, and fennel, with elements of vanilla and cola as well. The flavors are in harmony with the aroma – this wine is not a flirt. It delivers what it promises with soft fruit opening the palate and ripe, dynamic tannins carrying through to a sweet finish.

2004 Tolosa Syrah

The color is a deep garnet-hued red, so dense that it borders on black. Initial aromatic notes are of herb de Provence, especially lavender, with candied almond, cassis and spice a ... morelso contributing. The deeper layers of scent reveal white pepper, oak resin and cocoa. The palate is of medium structure with even, balanced tannins. Chocolate and toffee notes complete the flavors introduced by the bouquet.

2004 Tolosa Merlot
Edna Valley

Bay leaf, cocoa, and plum reveal themselves first, followed by cassis, tobacco, and mint. On the palate, this is a big, generous wine. The tannins are youthful, and will handle gri ... morelled steak, game, and pungent cheeses with aplomb. This is a Merlot that will gracefully endure several years’ cellaring, becoming more vinous and nuanced with age.

2004 Tolosa 1772 Chardonnay
Edna Valley

We prefer to serve this “1772” Chardonnay at cool room temperature, ~60-65F or so, in an oversized glass that will frame the aromas of lemon curd, marmalade, and cardamom pod. We l ... moreike the sense of balance between all the elements in this wine; it displays both a honeyed sweetness and herbal notes; structured acidity with a rich smoothness; and an interplay between the apricot / white peach and subtle, harmonious French oak. It would be fantastic with wilted bitter greens, tossed with a sprinkling of sea salt and olive oil.

2006 Tolosa Pinot Gris
Edna Valley

Resist the temptation to toss our Pinot Gris into an ice bucket; served too cold, the lovely aromatics may be obscured. Ten minutes of chill before service will nicely show off the ... more subtle jasmine and lily aromas, while retaining a nice balance between crispness and richness. Apple blossom, Asian pear, and a lemony citrus quality flash across the palate, and on the finish there is a spicy hint of cardamom and nutmeg. Squarely in the refreshing "Pinot Grigio" style, this is a fabulous food wine; try it with pasta salad, oysters, or pizzetta bianco.

2005 Tolosa Sauvignon Blanc
Edna Valley

Definitely New World in style, we are justly proud of this year’s bottling. Flamboyantly aromatic, showing a whole spectrum of exotic fruit, floral, and fresh herb notes: lime blos ... moresom, passion fruit, even lemon-thyme and cut basil. Rich fruitiness and balancing acidity, with layered flavors of kumquat, pineapple and kiwi.

2006 Tolosa Sauvignon Blanc

A study in textural balance, Tolosa's Sauvignon Blanc manages focusing varietal acidity against a rich, complete mouth; there is an agreable contrast between the green fig/citrus n ... moreotes and the ripe peach & melon flavors. Aromatically extravagant, with tropical guava, grapefruit, and tangerine bursting from the glass.

2005 Tolosa Chardonnay (No Oak)
Edna Valley

This is Chardonnay laid bare; no ML, and no barrels to hide behind! Pure lime blossom, white peach, and tangerine fruit with a core of cool-climate minerality. This is a big, flavo ... morerful Chardonnay, but balanced by elegant, crisp acidity. Stellar with sushi, and equally at home beside simple tapas; warm roasted almonds, Spanish tortilla or thin slices of Jamón Serrano & ripe melon.
