A Truly Original Experience

McKinney is a family owned & operated winery, specializing in a unique European-style, intimate experience, on our charming estate in the heart of Santa Ynez. We specialize in limited production wines, both single vineyard – single varietal, and many unique fuller bodied red wine blends. The property has stunning views of both the Santa Ynez and San Rafael Mountain ranges. Guests visiting our estate can expect the following:

  • A delightfully crafted flight of our limited production wines, each ranging from $70 up to $200 a bottle
  • Gain insight into what makes the Santa Ynez Valley one of the best wine producing regions in the world
