    Oso Libre, meaning the “Free Bear,” is a family owned boutique winery that produces very limited quantities of premium wine. Nestled in the Adelaida District, Oso Libre utilizes extended aging techniques to create wines with character, that capture the essence of this one of a kind wine region. Oso Libre produces Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Primitivo and Viognier. Their limited production single varietal wines and compelling red blends are offered to their “Free Bear” (Wine Club) members and are available in the tasting room.

    With a strong focus on stewardship and sustainability, Oso Libre is an SIP Certified (Sustainability In Practice) vineyard and winery. Utilizing natural vineyard management techniques, along with solar and wind power generation, Oso Libre is focused on maintaining and preserving their land for future generations.

    Additionally, Oso Libre is a traditional working cattle ranch. With a focus on high standards and a “less is more” approach, their premium Certified Angus Beef steers are raised on the ranch with no hormones, no corn and no stress. They are grass-fed in open pastures, enjoying free-range grasses and water from flowing creeks.
