ABOUT

Located in scenic Leiper's Fork, our winery and vineyard provides a unique opportunity to create unforgettable memories.

Eric Coghlan began his wine-making career in 2008 in the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara. He and his wife Samantha purchased a vineyard and opened Coghlan Vineyard & Jewelers in Los Olivos, CA. They received many awards for their wines, including a 94 point rating on their first vintage of Pinot Noir. They longed to be closer to family, so they sold their vineyard and ultimately moved to Leiper's Fork, Tn. Since then they have owned and operated Pot N' Kettle Cottages, Leiper's Fork Premier Vacation Rentals, but the wine kept calling their names. Eric has now planted the first vineyard in Leiper's Fork and will continue to produce his high quality wines. We look forward to seeing you in the tasting room.

 
 
 

HISTORY

Originally our estate vineyard was located in Santa Ynez, Ca and our tasting room in Los Olivos, Ca. We received many accolades for the wines we produced. Our 2009 Pinot Noir received 94 points from Wine Enthusiast and our 2009 Grenache Blanc received 91 points. We were thrilled about this praise for our first vintage. We went on to take gold in the Pinot Noir Shoot Out several years in a row. We became the first CCOF vineyard in the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Ynez. We have always taken a minimalist approach to farming and wine making and we plan to continue this in Leiper's Fork.
