The grapes for our Toasted Head Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the Lake County region of California and from Mendocino, including the Redwood Valley.
These grapes thrive in the loamy and gravel-like soil of these vineyards.
|Toasted Head and the fire-breathing bear began their amazing journey in 1995. From a winery tucked away in the Dunnigan Hills of Yolo County, they set out to spread the word of toasted barrels and their distinctive influence on wine. Toasted Head is named for the age-old practice of toasting barrel heads and staves that imparts a mellow, toasted flavor to barrel-aged wines. The fire-breathing bear on our label was originally inspired by a drawing created by artist Robert Shetterly for a poem entitled ”Speaking Fire at Stones.”
