Vineyard Notes
The 35-acre Brick Barn estate vineyard lies just north of the Santa Ynez River in a largely unexplored winegrowing corridor near the city of Buellton in the western Santa Ynez Valley. With the Pacific Ocean just 10 miles away, the marine influence is forceful yet sun exposure remains persistent—a providential combination that produces fruit with exceptional dimension. Our Vermentino is planted to the Tablas A clone in Block 7, a small two-acre parcel situated behind our winery. Here, sandy riverbed soils foster vivid aromatics in our Vermentino fruit, while the persistent Pacific breezes help maintain fresh acidity right through full maturity. Tight 6x3 vine spacing ensures that yields are kept in check for the sake of natural flavor intensity.
Production Notes
The vision behind our Vermentino is to produce a varietally true wine that exhibits a vibrant yet complex fruit character. The fruit was harvested at night and pressed in the morning. The juice was cold settled for four days, then racked off the solids and cold fermented in stainless steel for a period of 14 days. The wine was then racked off the lees and aged for eight months prior to bottling. The majority of the wine was aged in stainless steel to ensure the retention of delicate aromatics and bright fruit flavors. The remainder was aged in neutral French oak barrels, which brought an added touch of depth and roundness to the final blend.
Winemaker Notes
The distinctive growing conditions of our estate vineyard are a perfect fit for Vermentino, inspiring us to feature this underrated Italian variety in our small family of white wines.

It’s a treat to have this varietal in our backyard. I love to enjoy it with seafood, but also appreciate that it stands well on its own. The lime and citrus notes softened by sweet peach make this one of my favorite summer wines. Make sure to snag a bottle, but not all of them as I’ll be back for more!

Delightful flavor and very refreshing. This one really stood out to me even among the already excellent selection of white wines.

My favorite of the Brick Barn whites. Light, refreshing, yet very flavorful. It's wonderful on its own, but also pairs well with a salad, seafood, or other light fare. The perfect wine for a warm day.
