Story of Soil is a hidden gem located in a charming bungalow off the main hub in Los Olivos. It is tucked away and has that feeling of being a special place only few people know about. The rustic elegance inside alludes to the wines this place is dedicated to: a balance of robust flavor with finesse.
The lineup of wines is impressive – not just for their quality, but also for the unusual offering of a few varietals: Grüner Veltliner, Austria’s native grape and a relative newcomer to California, as well as Gamay, a French varietal known for being used in Beaujolais. All are small batch wines, with grapes sourced from local vineyards. The average case count is 150 per wine, with a total of about 1,100 cases.
It’s clear Winemaker Jessica Gasca has dedicated her life to the crafting of wine. From vineyard internship to apprenticeship to creating her own, her single varietal wines and winemaking style are undeniably a labor of love.
