Seven years in the home and they have planted 1000 vines. Along the Italian theme of the Sangiovese and Montepulciano they have planted Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and table grapes (for eating). In 2003 they won a Gold in the Orange County Fair for our Sauvignon Blanc. they now bottle under the Cougar Vineyard & Winery label.

In 2005 they purchased the winery property in Temecula and planted Sangiovese, Aglianico, Montepulciano, and Vermentino since then they've added Falanghina, Coda di Volpe, Canaiolo Nero, Ciliegiolo, Prosecco now known as Glera since 2009 and Piedirosso.
