The Brick Barn Wine Estate belongs to the legacy of the Rancho San Carlos de Jonata dating back to California’s rancho era. Rancho San Carlos de Jonata was a 26,634-acre Mexican land grant that stretched from west of Mission Santa Inés in the Santa Ynez Valley, and extended north from the Santa Ynez River along Zaca Creek- now called Solvang and Buellton.
In 1969 Norman Williams purchase the first 40 acres of the property and shortly thereafter he and his family acquired the adjacent 1,100 acres of the original Buell Ranch. Fast forward through the decades, Norman and his wife Kathy cultivated a new passion for growing grapes—and now for making wine.
While Brick Barn Wine Estate inhabits 35 acres of vineyards, the ranch is dedicated to preserving its heritage with farming organic vegetables and cattle ranching.
