Even as childhood sweethearts we have always had a common goal, and this vineyard and winery is our latest vision come to life. We purchased our 180-acre ranch while living in Scotland, and our time there inspired the name Torr Na Lochs, which loosely translates from Gaelic to Hill Over Lakes. The winery sits high above the Colorado River valley overlooking both Inks and Buchanan lakes.
It was on a wine tour in Australia that we noticed the similarities between the vineyards there and our ranch property, and the idea for the vineyard and winery was born. Two years of weekends preparing the vineyard culminated with the planting of our first three acres of vines in April 2014. Winery construction started shortly thereafter, and the tasting room opened in September 2015.
