Our Story

Los Pilares is Coleman Cooney, Kyley Morgan, Jay McCarthy, and Michael Christian. Before making wine for others we were all either backyard vignerons, garage winemakers, or wine industry professionals. Since the first vintage in 2010, we have been showcasing the terroir of San Diego’s backcountry and mountains by making wine with nothing but grapes, sometimes apples. All the fruit comes from sustainable vineyards and orchards grown in the backcountry and mountains of San Diego County.
