Estate Grown - Estate Bottled, The Vincent Vineyards and Winery was planted in 2007 to 15 acres of vineyard. As a dedicated boutique producer of the finest Bordeaux varietals. Our micro climate, soil and meticulous farming has already started producing exceptional results. The estate's first vintage was harvested in 2010 and already possesses great promise by continuing the tradition of producing ultra premium handcrafted wines from the Santa Ynez Valley A.V.A. Our current estate varietals in production are: Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and our Meritage blend, V Cuvee.

We are also one of the few wineries in the Valley where you can sit and enjoy table service on our expansive outdoor vineyard terrace or enjoy this repast in a less formal venue, at our well appointed bar in the main salon. Either way, you'll be immersed in the exquisite views of our vineyard covered estate and the majestic Santa Ynez mountains.

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

Visit www.gypsystudiosart.com/events to see our full array of Painting in the Vineyard classes. Or call 805.990.2105 to inquire about private events.
