VARINDER AND ANITA
“OUR STORY IS ONE OF TIRELESS EFFORT,
POSITIVE THINKING, HARD WORK, PASSIONATE CURIOSITY, GRATITUDE AND RESPECT FOR THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE US AND A SENSE OF AWE FOR ALL THAT IS TO COME.
COPIA IS ABUNDANCE.
OUR CUP IS FULL AND WE'RE EXCITED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ... "
We are Varinder Sahi and Anita Kothari.
Our first visited Paso Robles was in the winter of 2015 as part of an educational tour. It was a breath of fresh air. The land, the wine, the people - all had captivated and captured us. Long story, really short: We had to be in Paso.
In 2017, we found our special place: 50 acres among the scenic hills on the westside of Paso Robles in the Willow Creek District. Breathtakingly beautiful slopes and calcareous soils make it an ideal site for us to plant our vineyard to produce world-class wine. We are now embarking on the task of preparing the land and having 20 acres under vine by spring 2019.
Hand in hand, together we're creating Copia, a boutique winery where we’re making wine one small lot at a time. We currently produce just 450 cases of wine using premium sourced fruit, mostly Rhône inspired and from the Willow Creek and Adelaida Districts and Edna Valley. We are happy to share the details of our first release - the 2016 vintage, available online and at our downtown tasting room at Paso Underground.
