Artisan Wine

Cima Collina produces artisan wines from small Monterey vineyards. The idea of an “artisan wine” is the partnership with growers who meticulously cultivate vineyards, the insistence on using only carefully chosen fruit, and the creation of wine on a barrel-by-barrel basis.

The focus on Monterey vineyards is an acknowledgment that this region is now and will continue to produce wines that are interesting, compelling and unique. Many factors conspire to make this a truly gifted region for growing grapes. With the cool maritime climate, well-drained soils and energy of our winemaking colleagues, a dynamic renaissance is currently underway in our region.

We invite you try the wines of Cima Collina. We are confident we will meet your highest expectations of what an artisan wine should be.

Rich in History

We take great pride in our association with the early history of Carmel Valley. The tasting room is located in the old Del Monte Dairy constructed by one of the Valley’s early pioneers, William Hatton, in the late 19th century. Some of the earliest Monterey Jack cheese was made here.

The tasting room has also served as Carmel Valley’s first post office, a stop for the stage coach to Tassajara Hot Springs, an art gallery, and several local favorite restaurants.

Grapes first introduced by the Franciscan friars, who established the Mission at the mouth of the valley, provide the backdrop to our estate vineyard. Located about one half mile east of Carmel Valley Village, the land was originally part of a historic ranch and site for California’s first dude ranch.

Come experience the rich history of Cima Collina.
