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.

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.

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.

Discover your inner artist at a Painting in the Vineyard event! We invite you to grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush and join us for a fun and relaxing outdoor experience. Bring your friends and family and capture the scenery on canvas. Our local vineyards provide a beautiful, stress-free environment that will both inspire your creative spirit and indulge the wine-lover in you.

No painting experience necessary–a trained, local artist will walk you through the entire two-hour painting process step-by-step, and you’ll take home a landscape painting of your own to commemorate your trip to wine country.

Consider a private painting event to celebrate birthdays, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, anniversaries, girls trips, family reunions, corporate team-building events and more.

Visit www.artspotonwheels.com to see our full array of Painting in the Vineyard classes. Or call 805.325.8092 to inquire about private events.

Small urban and wild farmlands uniquely accommodate and preserve ecosystems while they supply quality food to local communities. Small urban farmlands are islands of bio-diverse green in the asphalt sprawl of human development. Wild farmlands personify natural sustainable agriculture, preserving ecosystems while providing premium quality foods.

California, as a representative of big agriculture in the developed countries of the world, is losing her small farms, and in particular the wild farmlands. We would like to change this.

Our vision is to see small sustainable farmlands that serve local communities thrive and increase in numbers not only here on the Central Coast, but worldwide. The Central Coast of California is in a unique position to lead the way.
