Welcome to Freedom the smallest winery in California!

SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAIN WINES

Our grapes are locally-sourced and represent the region this year with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandel. These wines are produced locally and for sale click here if you are interested in purchasing our wines.

CHECK OUT WINDMILL FARMS VINEYARD

Above -- the bird nets are going on just prior to harvest. Bird activity is a sure sign that the grapes are ripe and the nets will prevent them from reducing the crop.

FRUIT WINES

These wines are bottled using the service mark HOW SWINE. Fruit is sourced from a variety of local farms and sometimes wild-foraged or surplus fruit is used. No two fermentations are alike and these small batch wines each reflect this unique character. A few of these are shown below. These wines are bottled locally and for sale. Please click here to purchase.
