Brothers Restaurant

at the Red Barn

The Nichols Brothers

The Nichols brothers, Matt & Jeff, grew up in Ames, Iowa where their love of cooking, good food and a sense of family and community was nurtured. In the summer of 1996, they opened the original Brothers Restaurant in Solvang, which they soon outgrew. In 2002, the brothers brought fine dining to Mattei’s Tavern and are proud to have been the caretakers of that venerable spot until they opened Sides Hardware & Shoes – a Brothers Restaurant in Los Olivos in 2012.

Santa Barbara Wine Country restaurant

Santa Ynez

The 2013 opening of their second Santa Barbara Wine Country restaurant, Brothers Restaurant at the Red Barn in Santa Ynez, allows them to offer visitors and locals alike great food, wine and hospitality.

Demetria Estate

Established in 2005, Demetria Estate is a family owned winery. Our goal is to produce wines of distinction and character rivaling those of the world’s greatest estates. Our wines are artfully crafted to showcase the unique growing conditions of the Santa Ynez Valley and Sta. Rita Hills. We believe that low yields, sustainable and biodynamic farming practices, and gentle winemaking produce wines of exceptional quality.

Greek heritage

Demetria Estate grew out of the desire of owners John and Sandra Zahoudanis to continue a family legacy connecting his Greek heritage with their family’s future. John grew up on a modest family farm at the base of Mount Olympus in Greece. The unparalleled beauty and Mediterranean feel of the Demetria Estate reminded John of his homeland and became the perfect location to carry on the family tradition of farming and careful stewardship of the land.

EVAN’S RANCH

Winery

Located in the renowned Santa Rita Hills appellation of western Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County and established during the 1990s by the Gainey family, who have farmed in Santa Ynez Valley for four generations and were searching for an ideal site on which to cultivate the classic cool-climate varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah.

Named after owner Dan Gainey’s great-grandfather, Evan’s Ranch is just ten miles from the Pacific Ocean and benefits from its marine influence, which lengthens the growing season, limits crop yields, and produces grapes with ripe, concentrated flavors balanced by bright acidity and a refreshing minerality. This enables us to craft six very limited-production, world-class wines: Las Brisas and La Marina Chardonnays, Las Brisas and Lone Oak Pinot Noirs and Las Brisas and Lone Oak Syrahs.

Kaena is a boutique winery that sources from Tierra Alta Vineyard and Larner Vineyard in the Ballard Canyon AVA , primarily. Winemaker, Mikael Sigouin, who is part Hawaiian and raised on the Oahu shores, uses a shortened version of his given name for the brand – Kaena – which means “potential for greatness”.

That “greatness” is evident in the wines – in 2006 Wine Spectator named Mikael one of the top 10 new Rhone producers. Known affectionately by his peers and fans as The Grenache King – Kaena produces 2,000 cases of Rhone & other varietals with an emphasis on Grenache.

Kaena has been serving up the Aloha in the Santa Ynez Valley for the last three years in the beautiful quaint town of Los Olivos. The vibe is welcoming, chill, relaxed. We feel so proud of our staff we consider them our O’hana, which means “Family” in the Hawaiian language. Our O’hana is knowledgeable, compassionate and just down right fun to cruz with! Come in and enjoy the best Grenache around!

Happy Canyon Vineyard is nestled into the undulating hills of the beautiful Piocho Ranch. The Barracks have taken great pride over the years in being stewards of the land and along with their wine maker Doug Margerum, have created something that is unique to the beauty and richness of the place. Piocho, is a Chumash Indian word meaning “where the two rivers meet and go to heaven”. The ranch is also home to the “Piocho” polo team.

There are the top wines called Barrack Brand, Barrack Blanc and Barrack Ten–Goal and two companion wines; PIOCHO is the champion wine made mostly from Cabernet Franc. There is also a nouveau styled Bordeaux blend released each Easter (perfect with Spring Lamb) called CHUKKER.

Our wines are available on our website and in our new tasting room, located in Santa Barbara at 30 El Paseo, open 12pm – 6pm daily. For a truly special experience, we offer private, by appointment tastings at our ranch and vineyard.

CrossHatch Winery

All of the wines produced by CrossHatch Winery are co-fermented blends sourced from Santa Barbara County vineyards. The idea of co-fermented wine is nothing new. Some of the best and oldest wines in the world are made this way, but with the micro-climates of Santa Barbara it really adds another layer to the process. Co-fermentation brings out and creates flavors in the wine that would not have existed otherwise. This makes the CrossHatch wine truly one of a kind.

Brave & Maiden

Estate Winery

Brave & Maiden Estate, we take our name from the “Legend of Nojoqui” (pronounced Naw-ho-wee), an indigenous incarnation of Romeo & Juliet. Set at the nearby Nojoqui Falls, the legend recounts the story of star-crossed lovers who choose sacrifice over separation. Inspired by such profound commitment, we’ve created a twofold and ambitious commitment of our own: to craft extraordinary wines and to share them with unforgettable hospitality.

Our wines are grown and produced under the direction of Consulting Winemaker Paul Hobbs and with the mastery of Winemaker Josh Klapper in the cellar. In our portfolio of wines, you’ll find exquisite Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Merlot, and Sauvigon Blanc. We have also taken on a particular goal of producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Ynez. Our critically acclaimed Limited Cabernet Sauvignon—and our other small lot, black label wines—are available exclusively at our estate to Members and visiting guests.

Brave & Maiden Estate is located in Satna Barbara Wine Country, just off Highway 246 between Santa Ynez and Solvang, just a few minutes south of Los Olivos.

Master Sommelier Paolo Barbieri

(BWC) Barbieri Wine Company was founded in 2005 by Master Sommelier Paolo Barbieri. Prior to 2005, Paolo started making very small lots in his garage in Las Vegas. This eventually evolved into forming Barbieri Wine Company to set out to produce his own wine.

Wine Company Rhone Varietals

Barbieri-Wine-CompanyThe objective was to produce Rhone Varietals from top vineyards located in Santa Barbara County. The approach was simple: work with great growers and use minimalistic wine making techniques without heavy oak influence.

Before and during the development of his wine company, Paolo worked in the restaurant business for over 30 years managing numerous world class wine lists from Europe and later in the United States exposing him to the best wines in the world, which ultimately shaped his approach for his own wines. During this time, Erin Kempe joined Paolo, and together they continued to fulfill their passion for wine making and developing hand-crafted boutique wines in Los Olivos, Santa Barbara county wine country.

Grass Mountain Trail

Grass Mountain Trail is a 5.2 mile out and back trail located near the towns of Los Olivos and Santa Ynez. Depending on the season, the trail may feature beautiful wildflowers which adds to its popularity. The trail is primarily used for hiking and rated as difficult; dogs on leash are also able to use this trail.

Starting off easy, this trail steadily increases in difficulty until the final mile directly up the side of the mountain to the peak. It is not the highest mountain in the area but has commanding views over most the surrounding area.

Midland School Trails

The Grass Mountain hiking trail is part of The Midland School trails, a private trail system opened to the public through the generosity of the school. Hikers must fill out a permit and parking pass at the trail head, where permit boxes are located.

Finding the Trailhead: Shortly after passing what was formerly Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, as you ascend Figueroa Mountain Road, you will cross over a cattle guard. Parking should be available on the right. Cross the street and find the trailhead where the permit box is located.

Note: The Midland School Trails are subject to closures. Visit www.midland-school.org to learn more. See this map for more information regarding the Midland Trails and for further contact information: https://sbtrails.org/maps/midland/Midland-Trail-Map-2016.pdf.
