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 hard over the last few years helping Ross continue to make his world-class Imagine Wines and to improve the winery facilites. In the meantime, Ross and his lovely wife, LynDee Rankin, have been very influencial and very generous in helping us to get our winery project, 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 Tierra Alta (Syrah, Grenache, Grenache Gris), Estelle (Merlot), Riverbench (Albarino), Thompson (Grenache Blanc), La Encantada (Pinot Noir), Watch Hill (Syrah) and Stanger Vineyards (Tempranillo).

Current Releases

Nothing for sale just yet, but we expect to have our first two bottlings done in May or June of this year (2021). This should include our 2020 Riverbench Albariño and our 2020 Tierra Alta Rosé of Grenache Gris.

If you're in the area, please inquire about a barrel tasting of these and other upcoming wines.

Keep in touch!

We can't wait to get 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.
