Red Car was first imagined during a trip to the coastal mountains of western Sonoma County. There was a clear sense that this was the place where Red Car should settle, a place to call home. That morning’s sights and smells of the Pacific fog mixing with the giant redwoods as the sunshine pushed it back out to sea inspired in the founders a harmony with nature. They felt connected to the hum of the land and couldn’t wait to express its uniqueness in their wines. The inaugural vintage for Red Car was 2000 and since then they have achieved soaring heights for their stunning cool weather wines. The winery name is a tribute to trolley cars that serviced Los Angeles through the first half of the 20th century. It serves as a reminder of the founders' original connection to the City of Angels, the place that inspired them to dream.
