Stanley was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. While working at a financial firm in Los Angeles, he began collecting and sharing wines with associates. He formed wine tasting groups and competitive tastings with colleagues, further expanding his knowledge in wines from around the globe. In 2013 while still living and working in Los Angeles, Stanley did a harvest internship in Paso Robles where he learned the craft of winemaking. The following year he purchased four tons of grapes from the west side Paso Robles, which later became the first vintage of TOP wines.


Elena was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She worked several years in hospitality, which is where she first discovered her passion for wine. In 2005, she moved to the Willamette Valley to explore the wines of Oregon while shifting her career focus to real estate as a broker. In 2007, she moved back to Los Angeles to study oriental medicine and acupuncture before moving full-time to Paso Robles in 2019. Elena’s management and hospitality experience have become the core of what TOP is today.
