Developed in 1999, the Coquelicot Estate VIneyard lies just south of the historic Mission Santa Ines in the Santa Ynez Valley on California’s Central Coast. In 2007 we implemented sustainable and also organic farming protocols with the goal of obtaining our organic certification in 2010.

Our vineyard crew strives daily to keep our vines healthy and happy and we believe in pushing our vines by applying just the right amount of stress to produce incredible character and flavor concentration in our grapes. Over the years more than a few couples have tied the knot in our vineyard and then danced the night away in our restored ninety year old barn.

Set amidst acres of wilderness flanked by the picturesque Santa Ynez and San Rafael Mountains, lies glimmering Cachuma Lake. Here you will find practically everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the great outdoors. Mild temperatures, typically sunny skies, and celebrated fishing conditions make camping here during winter months exceptionally rewarding.

The County entered into a long-term lease with the Federal Bureau of Reclamation in 1953 to manage the 9,000 acre Cachuma Lake Recreation Area. Cachuma Lake was formed by the construction of Bradbury Dam in that same year.

Located off scenic Highway 154 in the Santa Ynez Valley, Cachuma Lake is midway between the beaches and bustle of Santa Barbara and the Danish Community of Solvang. At any age… in any season… you’ll find that the Cachuma Lake Recreation Area offers a fun and relaxing getaway.

From the South: Take Highway 101 north to Santa Barbara. Take the “Cachuma Lake/Highway 154” exit and follow the signs. Drive app
