Weibel Family Vineyards & Winery
The Weibel Family has been producing California sparkling wine and still wines through four generations since 1939 in California. Probably best known for its "Green Hungarian," wines are produced under the Stone Creek, Knightsdale,"i", and Weibel Family labels. Pinot Noir is grown in the H&W Estate Vineyard in Mendocino County.
Truscott Wines are also part of the Weibel Family Vineyards & Winery and was created to commemorate the spirit of the Legend of Samuel Z. Truscott. In the summer of 1849, Truscott crossed the California Sierras looking for gold. After several years as a partner in a profitable claim, Truscott moved to San Francisco and owned a business that delivered California wines to restaurants and residents. He eventually headed north and learned winemaking from the Italian and Swiss immigrants while working in wineries in Sonoma County. In his later years, he resettled in Mendocino County and tended a vineyard. The wines are priced for the premium and super-premium market.
The winery's extensive lineup of wines is offered through the website.
