Tomi Cellars currently operates out of Imagine Wine in Buellton, California - courtesy of my good friend and mentor, Ross Rankin. Ross has been my primary influence in winemaking techniques and winemaking style, though I've been branching out a bit, beyond even Ross' comfort zone. I've been working the last few years to help Ross make his world-class Imagine Wines and to improve the winery facilites. In the meantime, Ross and his lovely wife, LynDee, have been very influencial and generous in helping us to get our winery, Tomi Cellars, off of the ground.


Tomi Cellars owns no vineyards. We purchase premium wine grapes from several top Central Coast vineyards. Vineyards such as Riverbench (Albarino), Thompson (Grenache Blanc), La Encantada (Pinot Noir), Watch Hill (Syrah), Stanger Vineyards (Tempranillo), Tierra Alta (Syrah, Grenache, Grenache Gris) and Estelle (Merlot).

Current Releases

We're pleased to announce our first bottling! We still have several red vintages aging in barrels, but we now have our 2020 Riverbench Albariño and our 2020 Tierra Alta Rosé of Grenache Gris bottled and up for sale!

If you're in the area, please come on into the tasting room and try them. And inquire about a barrel tasting of our other upcoming wines.

Keep in touch!

We can't wait to get more of our wines into the bottle so we can share with all of our friends. And we hope you'll come by and taste our wines on your next visit the the Santa Ynez Valley.
