Owner description: We are a boutique winery and vineyard, nestled among the oak-studded rolling hills of Ballard Canyon. Our mission is to create world-class, handcrafted wines that reflect our commitment to excellence and our love for this region. That commitment begins in our Estate Vineyard, which we re-planted in 2003 in order to capture the true character of Ballard Canyon, and which we meticulously farm in small lots. It extends to the winemaking process, during which we go to every possible length to achieve the delicate balance of "elegance & power" (Robert Parker, August 2010) for which our wines have become known around the world. Finally, it extends to our label, a Catalina tile, a family legacy symbol of our belief in the beauty of what arises from blending craft, earth, art and family.

Easy drive up from Santa Barbara area. We emailed to see if we could bring our dogs. Yes is the answer and they reserved us a table under a huge tree with grass. Super nice people. Bring a lunch and buy a bottle of wine. Or wine taste. Beautiful grounds. Can't express to you how nice the day was! Cool 84 degrees. A delight!

First stop on our wine trip.

Rick was a great host. Five wines to taste. Great sitting area among the shade trees and vines.

Worth the stop.

Began our overnight getaway with a stop at Rusack Vineyards. Mike and Don were very friendly and attentive. Excellent wines, both reds and whites, and a beautiful location to sip and picnic on their shady patio. Atmosphere and subtle music were perfect. A little out of the way, but certainly worth the short trip from downtown Solvang.

This is a great place to stop for lunch. Rusack makes quite lovely, not super expensive wines. It is a short drive from the town of Los Olivos. But best of all is the large deck shaded by oak trees with tables to sit, relax, and eat the lunch you have brought or bought at the great sandwich place somewhere!

We brought our lunch to Rusack's and bought their wine tasting package, six wines for $15 and that include the glass. Great value for money and the surroundings are wonderful
