Offering fresh, crisp, and vibrant wines of pure varietal character, Tangent is the first California winery to focus solely on  alternative white wines.  The project was conceived by the third grape-growing generation of the Edna Valley's Niven family.  Tangent wines are made by veteran winemaker Christian Roguenant, from grapes grown in our SIP™Certified Sustainable vineyards.  The line-up of wines includes Albariño, Grenache Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and a white blend named Ecclestone.  Come enjoy stunning views and beautiful picnic grounds at the century-old Independence Schoolhouse, where Tangent is poured alongside its sister wineries, Baileyana, Trenza, Cadre and Zocker.  A truly unique wine tasting experience, all under one roof.
