Welcome to Carica Wines!
Critically-acclaimed, single-vineyard wines. Hand-crafted from premium California grapes.
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 varietals, Carica produces Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Rosé, and Sauvignon Blanc. Carica also makes a proprietary, Rhone-style red wine, blending Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. 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.
