Frederic hails from Toulouse, France, and received his master’s degree in agricultural sciences in 1995 from the Ecole Supérieure d’agriculture de Purpan (ESAP) in Toulouse. His career path has allowed him to make wines for distinguished wineries in the Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast. He was introduced to Tolosa and Edna Valley in 2017. He immediately perceived that the unique terroir of Edna Valley provides an incredible palette for balanced, complex and nuanced Pinot Noirs.
Cowboy dreams of owning a cattle ranch brought vintner Robin Baggett to Edna Valley. The cold Pacific wind and soils from ancient sea bed to limestone made him realize he was on a frontier of a different sort. Tolosa is the expression of his commitment to spare no effort to craft nuanced and balanced Pinot Noir of distinctive character to rival any in the world. We invite you to visit Tolosa for an exploration of Tolosa's flagship Primera and our Single Vineyard Wines.
