We offer exclusively private tours and tastings at our beautiful estate in Santa Ynez!

About this experience

At the Estate in Santa Ynez we offer private tours and tastings that are 1 hour and 45 minutes, by appointment only.

This is a personal tour and tasting led by the winemakers and/or sommelier's themselves. If you are interested in learning about the Santa Barbara wine growing region, the wine-making process, the farming practices we implement on the estate, and limited production high-end wines, then you've come to right place!

Our appointments book up fast, so we encourage you to make your reservation well in advance. We require at least 48 hours of booking, as it's difficult for us to accommodate any last minute requests. 

Once your appointment is booked, we'll contact you to provide the address, gate code, and directions on the estate. We are a family friendly winery, but please supervise your children. Please contact us in regards to bringing your pet dog to the estate!

We do not provide food or snacks on the estate, however you are welcome to bring your own food. Santa Ynez Valley can have extreme weather all year round, please ensure you are prepared for the weather appropriately.

If you are booking for a larger group of 9 or more guests, please email us at to discuss.
