Vega Vineyard

Farm

After 40 years in the hospitality business, we understand the value of building relationships, sharing a table for special moments over food and wine, and experiencing the beauty and bounty of Santa Barbara Wine Country.

With a concentration on our estate vineyard, we have sought to produce wines that are “a window to a place.” Each one of our wines is different in expression, with its own subtle, yet distinctive character and voice. Each year renews in us an intense drive to understand, react to, and work with the vineyard to allow it to reach its full potential. This process, led by our winemaker, Steve Clifton, is crucial for the execution of successful wines.

Santa Ynez Valley Star

Over the years, we have loved Solvang, Santa Ynez, and Los Olivos, learning more about the history and people.

When we were introduced to former publisher Raiza Giorgi, we knew right away that the Santa Ynez Valley Star would be a great fit.

We have kept the great team that has served the community for many years: Copy Editor Mike Chaldu, Advertising Director Amberly Lahr, and Reporter Pamela Dozois.

We continue to evaluate systems and processes to bring you the best local newspaper with breaking news and up-to-date articles both in print and online.

The Central Coast of California — including its inland neighbors from Paso Robles to Santa Ynez and Solvang — is a special place.

Our wines

Hand made and limited production wines

In 2018 we started Rockets Red Wines to share amazing wines and highlight our time in the military while giving back to the veteran and local community.

Our winemaking style involves minimal intervention and just guiding the grapes on their path to wine. We experiment with native fermentation, letting nature work as intended.

The Sta. Rita Hills appellation is in Santa Barbara County, California. A cool-climate winegrape-growing region defined by two valleys on either side of the actual Santa Rita Hills and makes it a great place for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is that the Sta. Rita Hills runs east-west to the Pacific Ocean.

As the marine fog rolls in from the nearby Pacific Ocean through the Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Ynez Valley winegrowing regions, we’re reminded of the ocean and the vineyards and wine – Seagrape, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills!

Sta. Rita Hills

Winegrowers Alliance

The Sta. Rita Hills Winegrowers Alliance was formed in 1997 to unify growers and winemakers in the Western Santa Ynez Valley for the purpose of developing their own American Viticulture Area and to promote this unique wine growing region.

Sta. Rita Hills American Viticulture Appellation (AMA)

The Sta. Rita Hills American Viticulture Appellation is located on California’s Central Coast in Santa Barbara County. The Pacific Ocean’s marine layer and afternoon ocean breezes traverse the coastal valley corridors between the Purisima Hills and the Santa Rosa Hills, creating the perfect environment for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and other cool climate wine grape varieties.

Alliance Mission

The Sta. Rita Hills AVA status was granted in 2001 by the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Regulation Division. The mission of the Alliance is to support the viticulture and enological business interests of its 47 Members, as they relate to grapes and wine from our AVA.

Rusack Vineyards

Boutique Winery

At Rusack Vineyards, we are a boutique winery and vineyard, nestled among the oak-studded rolling hills of Ballard Canyon. Our mission is to create world-class, handcrafted wines that reflect our commitment to excellence and our love for this region.

Rusack Vineyards handcrafts wines that have become known around the world for their striking elegance, robust yet silky fruit, and seductive finish–reminiscent of the rolling hills of Ballard Canyon at dusk. Established in 1995 by the husband and wife team of Geoff Rusack and Alison Wrigley Rusack, the forty-eight acre Ballard Canyon estate is planted with twenty-one acres of grapes.
