Like a photograph, each bottle of wine captures a moment in time, providing an image of the land, weather, and winemaking practices. 

The grapes come from pristine sites across Northern California grown by farmers who believe in protecting and sustaining the earth and who value their vineyard workers

They allow this exceptional fruit to speak for itself by employing minimal intervention in the cellar. They list all of their ingredients on our labels because they are also focused on transparency. 

They are directed and intentional in everything they do from the vineyards to the cellar to the glass.

About Tintype

After an unforgettable internship with Donkey and Goat in 2011, Nick did two great things. First, he proposed to his now wife. Second, he took her on a bike tour exploring the wine regions of France. That trip culminated at Domaine Binner in Alsace, where they worked to create the 2012 vintage and began to dream of  a winery of their own. 

Back in California, Nick had the opportunity to work at Navarro Vineyards to continue to refine his skill and love of winemaking.

In 2014, Tintype Winery was born and the rest is history. 

Tintype Winery is owned and operated by Nick Johnson and Abigail Vorce in downtown Oakland, California. Together they share a passion for wine, photography, adventure, and their son Jasper.
