Coby Parker- Garcia and his wife, Katie Noonan, along with their daughter Callie, have a combined 25+ years of experience in the wine industry here on the beautiful Central Coast of CA. Coby Parker-Garcia has been making wines for 12 years and fell in love with Pinot Noir long ago and dreamed of creating high quality Pinot Noir from well known vineyards and AVA’s. In 2013 they took a leap of faith and made that dream come true by producing their first vintage of the two vineyard designate Pinot Noir’s. Katie and Coby met through working at neighboring wineries and instantly shared a combined passion for good wines, especially Pinot Noir. Katie’s background in the industry stems from 10 years in the marketing and direct to consumer side of the business, so with combined passions and experience, El Lugar was born!
