(805) 688-6411 www.alisal.comSANTA YNEZ VALLEY WINE INDUSTRY - Though known for earthy and satisfying Pinot Noir and delicious, plummy Syrah, the Santa Ynez Valley vineyards produce a wide range of excellent wines. This includes fine Rieslings, rich cherry Cabernet Sauvignon, crisp, fragrant Chardonnay, fruitful Merlot, and much more. The Santa Ynez Valley indeed boasts a world-class wine industry. The Santa Ynez Valley climate is affected by the narrow opening to the Pacific Ocean and the eastward rise in elevation. This, combined with rich soil and clay gives the Santa Ynez Valley the perfect set of micro-climates for growing and harvesting many grape varieties. The very tender and delicate grapes thrive and mature in the Western areas of the valley with its cooler temperatures. In the eastern hill and valleys warmer weather nurtures the full bodied varietals. The first vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley were planted in 1804 by the Spanish who founded Mission Santa Inés. But bygone conventional wisdom dictated that the cool Santa Ynez climate was not appropriate for serious wine growers, and so they disappeared. However, in the 1960's new wine growing technology and increasing demand for quality wines gave rebirth to the wine industry here. California wines were found to be as fine as any wines that France could offer. Napa and Sonoma Valleys led the production, followed by Santa Maria Valley, and at last Santa Ynez Valley. Today, the Santa Ynez Valley boasts some of California's finest vineyards.Side One of Franko’s Guide Map of the Santa Ynez Valley also shows the numerous wineries and tasting rooms, with the following descriptions:Daniel Gehrs Wines - Features small lots of hand-crafted wines made in a classic old-world style. 2939 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 693-9686 11 - 5 dailyEpiphany Cellars - Specializing in Syrah, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, and a sparkling wine. 2963 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 686-2424 11:30 - 5:30 dailyCarhartt Vineyard - Small family business specializing in Syrah and Merlot at historic Rancho Santa Ynez. 2990 A Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 689-0685 11 - 5 Mon – SatAlexander & Wayne - Specializes in small production of classics native to the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France. 2992 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 824-8584 11 - 6 dailyArthur Earl Winery - Focuses on making wine from grapes native to Northern Italy’s Rhone Valley. 2922 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 646-EARL 11 - 6 dailyCarina Cellars - Producers of top-quality Viogniers, Syrahs, and Cabernet Sauvignons. 2900 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-2459 11 - 5 dailyScott Cellars - Small winery produces a wide variety of fine wines. 2933 San Marcos Ave #101, Los Olivos (805) 686-5450 Noon - 5 Th – MonBrander Vineyard - Well known for Savignon Blanc. 2401 Refugio, Los Olivos (805) 688-2455 11 - 4 dailyBridlewood Estate - Mission-style winery serious about Syrah. 3555 Roblar Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-9000 10 - 5 dailyRoblar Winery & Cooking School - Roblar showcases wines and delicious food, with Saturday night cooking classes, and Sunday brunches. 3010 Roblar Ave, Los Olivos (805) 686-1508 10 - 5 dailyBeckmen Vineyards - Family-run estate winery is a premier producer of Rhone varietal wines. 2670 Ontiveros Rd, Los Olivos (805) 686-8664 11 - 5 dailyBlackjack Ranch Winery - Award-winning Bordeaux varietals. 2205 Alamo Pintado Rd, Los Olivos (805) 686-9922 11 - 5 Th – MonBernat - Estate-grown, hand-crafted limited quantity Chardonnay and Syrah wines. 2879 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-7265 11 - 8 dailyAndrew Murray Vineyards - Handcrafted wines from steep hillside vineyards, planted exclusively to Rhone Valley varieties. 2901-A Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 693-9644 11 - 5 dailyJohn Kerr Wines - Award winning Chardonnay and Syrah with an enhanced flavor from oak barrels. 2901 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-5337 11 - 6 dailyTre Anelli - Features excellent wines crafted from old world Italian and Spanish grape varieties. 2923 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 686-3000 11 - 5 dailyConsilience Wines - Well known for Syrah and Viognier, and numerous award-winning wines. 2933 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 691-1020 11 - 5 dailyWild Heart Vineyard - Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Zinfandel. 2933-C Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-7388 11 - 5 Wed – SatLongoria Wines - Family-run winery producing small quantities of ultra premium hand-crafted wines. 2935 Grand Ave, Los Olivos (805) 688-0305 11- 4:30 dailyRusack Vineyards - Boutique vineyard and winery with super high quality wines. 1819 Ballard Cyn Rd, Solvang (805) 686-1508 11 - 5 dailyLincourt Vineyards - Built on a former dairy, this premium winery is located at 1711 Alamo Pintado Rd, Solvang (805) 688-8554 10 - 5 dailyCarhartt Vineyard - Estate-grown Merlot and Syrah 1691 Alamo Pintado Rd, Solvang (805) 688-0685 11 - 5 Wed – MonRideau Vineyard - Award-winning Rhone-inspired wines meets Southern USA hospitality. 1562 Alamo Pintado Rd, Solvang (805) 688-0717 11 - 5 dailyButtonwood Farm Winery - Signature wine is Savignon Blanc. 1500 Alamo Pintado Rd, Solvang (805) 686-3032 11 - 5 DailyArtiste - Neo-classical blends called "impressionist cuvées" that combine a sense of Old World style with a New World personality. 3569 Sagunto St, Santa Ynez (805) 686-2626Gainey Vineyard - Concentrates on Bordeaux varieties, as well as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay,and Syrah.
