Opolo wines win top scores

Summit Creek Earns Peak Ratings

We are proud to share that two Opolo wines—the 2021 Summit Creek Zinfandel and 2021 Summit Creek Cabernet Sauvignon—have received extraordinary critical praise over the past few months.

This run of high ratings is exceedingly rare for a pair of wines under $25 and ultimately cements the “best buy” legacy of our Summit Creek wines.

The Summit Creek line is dedicated to flagship Opolo varieties made in a highly approachable style, all from Paso Robles vineyards. These wines provide a perfect welcome point into the world of Opolo, and while they are not available at the winery, you will find them at many popular retailers.
