Producer Profiles

Topping & Legnon- Serving For the Love of Wine from Northern California

Topping & Legnon is a boutique winery creating bespoke, hand-selected organic wines sourced from their estate vineyards in Middleton, CA

With a pure passion for first, their vineyard to bringing grapes to glass, Topping & Legnon strive to create something unique and special in every bottle

Topping & Legnon wines all began as a dream hobby located in the Middleton vineyards in Northern California. Dana Topping and Rick Legnon had been close friends for over 30 years and it was time they took their passion for wine to the next level. Production began in 2008, and there was a lot of trial and error but each harvest they learned and adapted, and something very special started to come from those vines.

Now they have just over 16 acres of beautiful vines producing some exquisite wines. They invite you to come and visit them at their tasting room, which is also a working winery.
