Eric Stockwell was bitten by the winemaking bug in the early 2000’s. While running his own welding and metal fabrication business, he started making wine at home. Over the next decade he honed his skills and increased his yield. Through exploration and experimentation, he eventually came to focus on creating unmanipulated single varietal wines using Old World techniques.
By 2014, it was clear that his passion for winemaking had blossomed into the makings of another business. That spring, he cleared out the back half of his westside Santa Cruz welding shop and opened Stockwell Cellars to an appreciative public.
Our goal is to have fun! We look forward to riding with you soon.
