One of the earliest wineries in Santa Barbara County, Mosby Winery and Vineyards has been producing award-winning Cal-Ital wines since the 1970s. Bill and wife Jeri Mosby purchased the Santa Ynez Valley property in 1976 and initially planted the estate to Gewürztraminer, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The Mosby’s first commercial wines were bottled under the Vega label, named after the old land grant, but as the wine began to gain industry attention and a following of Mosby wine enthusiasts began to develop, the family insisted Bill change the label to reflect the Mosby name. In 1986, the label was changed and Vega Winery and Vineyards became Mosby Winery and Vineyards. Bill Mosby enjoys producing his Cal-Ital wines, which refers to Italian varietals grown in California, partly due to their versatility with food and partly because of their wide variety of flavors, aromas, and distinctive characters. Mosby’s wines have been well received by the press and public since the beginning, and although his specialty is the growing and vinification of fine Italian varietal wines, he also makes award-winning grappa and wild plum and raspberry distillates that express his passion and extreme talent working with Italian fruit.
