SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. September 18th, 2019—The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley is pleased to announce another winery addition to the association—welcome Cinnabar Winery.


Located on Big Basin Way in downtown Saratoga, Cinnabar Winery’s tasting room sits in the heart of town with a welcoming patio and relaxing tasting room.  New owners Ron and Lynne Mosley took ownership in July. Ron, a renowned winemaker and long-time friend of former founder Tom Mudd (1942-2007) and his family, started his winemaking career at Cinnabar Winery & Vineyard in 1983, where he cleared and planted vineyards in the land hidden in the Santa Clara Valley and Santa Cruz Mountains.

“Exactly 36 years later, I am reconnecting with this brand that is so dear to my heart. My goal is to keep making great wine and to ensure that Cinnabar continues to thrive,” said Mosley.

He has joined Cinnabar’s longtime winemaker George Troquato and cellar master Alejandro Aldama to continue the winemaking traditions, producing award-winning wines such as their flagship red wine, Mercury Rising, along with Cabernets, Pinots and elegant Chardonnays. Also, many highly regarded specialty varietals.

Mosley is also the owner of Tass Vineyards & Winery in Gilroy and Vinescape Inc, a vineyard management company – with more than 80 clients, he still has time to go back to his roots.

The Cinnabar family is now one out of the 34 wineries that belong to the Wineries of Santa Clara Valley Association.

Cinnabar Winery Tasting Room is located at 14612 Big Basin Way, Saratoga, California, 95070.

The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley is an association representing member wineries that grow and produce wines in one of the oldest wine producing regions of California.

With the first plantings at the Santa Clara Mission in 1798, the region of Santa Clara Valley represents one of the oldest growing traditions in the country. The Santa Clara Valley is now home to 34 wineries, of every size and shape, from long-established family operations to relatively small newcomers. On March 28, 1989, the Santa Clara Valley received AVA status; prior to this the region’s wines were typically labeled ‘Central Coast’ or ‘Santa Clara County’.
