“As the consolidation of larger wineries continues, small wineries dedicated to hand crafting single-vineyard wines become harder to find. We hope to offer you wines worthy your search -- wines that capture a unique sense of place and time.”

—Charlie Dollbaum, winemaker

Since its founding in 2005, Carica Wines has been making wine of extraordinary character from small lots of premium grapes. With a focus on single-vineyard designated winegrape varieties, Carica produces Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, and Sauvignon Blanc.  Carica also makes a proprietary, Rhone-style red wine, blending Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre.  A Rosé is also included in Carica’s portfolio.  Because Carica is very much a “hands on” winery, production is extremely limited.

The winemaking philosophy at Carica Wines is to create the highest quality wine whose characteristics reflect a sense of time and place.  Great intensity is a hallmark of these wines, but never at the expense of the critical balance among fruit, acid, and tannins.

You are warmly invited to enjoy Carica wines and to share them with your friends.
