Our wines hail primarily from our estate vineyards in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, with contributions from select local vineyards. Our Ambassador’s Vineyard was planted in 1990 as the cornerstone of our estate. Our Crossroads Vineyard followed in 1997, and is today recognized for producing one of the region’s most acclaimed Syrahs. Small blocks of Grenache and Roussanne are also integral to our estate program.
