EB Winery is owned and operated by Ed and Robin Szubielski. The 2016 upcoming harvest will be our thirteenth – the first ten as an amateur winemaker under Eddie’s Backyard and the last three as a bonded professional under the name of EB Winery. We are currently producing most of our handcrafted wines in Encinitas, California. Ed, as a self-taught winemaker is involved in all aspects of the winemaking process. Ed continues expanding his knowledge and education through participation in the Orange County Home WineMaking Society and attending numerous classes and seminars. We continued making wine at home in our garage until 2014. During those ten years we produced over 60 different wine varietals. Our wines have been entered in numerous competitions: Orange County Fair, Los Angeles County Fair, California State Fair, San Joaquin Fair, Indiana State Fair and the Wine Maker Magazine International Competition. We have been fortunate enough to receive over 190 various awards. In the Wine Maker Magazine International Competition, our 2007 Syrah was selected as the 2009 Grand Champion wine out of 4,476 entries and in 2013 our 2011 Pinot Noir was selected as Best of Show Red Wine from over 2,300 entries. We were extremely honored by these two very prestigious awards. Ed retired in June of 2016 after more than 40 years in the automotive manufacturing and aftermarket business. He is now focusing all of his time and energy in his journey of building the EB Winery brand of distinctive, high-quality handcrafted wines. Ed lives in Laguna Niguel, California with his wife Robin. We have two grown children, Garrett and Kayla. Please follow Ed’s dream at EBWinery.com.
