Mosby winery is committed to producing award-winning Cal-Italian wines. Bill and Jeri Mosby purchased the old de la Vega land in the early 1970s, and the first thing Bill did was plant vines. The Mosby’s first commercial wines were bottled under the Vega label, named after the old Spanish California land grant. Bill’s wine began to gain industry attention, and a following of Mosby wine enthusiasts continued to develop. In 1986, at his family’s insistence, Bill changed the Vega label to reflect the Mosby name and winemaking philosophy.
Located in the Santa Barbara County AVA, our vines are planted in various microclimates found on the estate with care taken to match the grape type with the most suitable conditions. This results in wines with the distinctive varietal character Bill Mosby demands. Bill’s experienced palate and careful, ongoing search for interesting new varietals have resulted in vintage after vintage of award-winning Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Teroldego, and more. His latest addition is the first domestically-produced Sagrantino released in this country.
The red carriage house adjacent to the adobe is home to the Mosby tasting room, open 7 days a week.
