We are excited to announce that we are bringing back our value label Big Hands this year with the release of the 2018 Big Hands Santa Barbara Grenache. It has been five years since we have released a wine under our value driven label Big Hands. The most obvious question is why haven’t any of these wines been produced? To understand the answer to that question, we must first explain how our wines are crafted.

After receiving great feedback on our Zoom Futures tastings, we have decided to continue with an expanded virtual tasting program year-round. While we cannot 100% replicate the experience of visiting our property in Los Olivos, we have designed a personally curated tasting program that brings the images of our vineyards and winery into your home.
Every fall for the last decade and a half, we have opened our cellar doors for a rare opportunity to taste a limited selection of our small production red wines still aging in oak barrels during our annual Futures program. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to change the Futures tasting program. This year, the six Futures wines will be available in a tasting kit which can be delivered to the 35 states where we currently ship.

Wine-Searcher just released an article including our 2017 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah as one of the best value wines in America! Our wine was the only wine listed that was crafted from 100% certified biodynamic grapes, and at only $36 a bottle, we couldn’t agree more with their recommendation.
We are very excited to announce the reopening of our tasting room on July 10, 2020! In order to provide a safe and excellent experience, we will be accepting customers by reservation only and asking guests to follow our tasting room and gazebo rules while visiting our estate.
1NGREDIENT wine represents an evolution that combines our past 25+ years of winegrowing and winemaking knowledge with our passion for the Biodynamic farming principles. As its name implies, 1NGREDIENT is wine made from one ingredient, Biodynamically certified wine grapes. Because there are no additives or preservatives utilized, this is our first wine which can be classified as a “natural” wine in most circles.
