one of the elite wine makers in the area (technically Santa Ynez), this place has amazing chardonnay, pinot noir, and cab/merlot blends a la Bordeaux. was briefly in the movie Sideways so you can check that off your list if so desired. Highly recommended.

The area is very nice with beautiful vineyards surrounding the tasting area. Nice gazebo outside to relax, have picnic and taste wine. Good quality wines and a good amount to taste for the fee. Large and nicely decorated interior.
