Where the Wine is Made


Head High Wines

In surfing slang, “head high” refers to the perfect sized wave - one that builds to the height of a rider’s head. Head High is an adventurous winery, built by surfers and explorers who are dedicated to contributing to a cleaner environment. They are free-spirited and creative, but also focused and hardworking winegrowers, dedicated to creating the best possible wines through vineyard stewardship, intelligent fruit sourcing, and meticulous care in the cellar. Head High believes really great wines should be available to everyone.
