Estate Vineyards

Nestled within the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley, just north of the meandering Santa Ynez River and near the charming city of Buellton, lies the sprawling 35-acre expanse of the Brick Barn estate vineyard. Tucked away in a captivating winegrowing corridor, this hidden gem represents the epitome of viticultural discovery.

Distinguished as the westernmost vineyard within the esteemed Santa Ynez Valley AVA, Brick Barn stands as a beacon of vinicultural ingenuity. Its unique positioning straddles the border between the warmth of the valley’s interior and the cool embrace of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, resulting in an unparalleled terroir.

Bathed in the invigorating influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean, located a mere 10 miles away, Brick Barn is graced with the relentless caress of marine elements. The gentle embrace of cool morning fog and refreshing evening breezes orchestrates a delicate dance, fostering an environment where ripening occurs steadily. This harmonious interplay ensures the preservation of natural acidity and structural integrity within the fruit.

Moreover, the estate basks in the unwavering gaze of the sun throughout the afternoons, nurturing the development of opulent, multi-dimensional flavors. It is this serendipitous fusion of sunlight and fog that imbues Brick Barn’s fruit with an unparalleled depth and complexity, elevating it to the pinnacle of vinicultural excellence.
