Carr Vineyards and Winery

Ryan Carr, the owner, winemaker, and grower for Carr Vineyards & Winery, discovered his passion for viticulture after moving to Santa Ynez Valley, California. Originally from Southern California, Ryan had an interest in farming but pursued an Art degree from the University of Arizona. After tasting local wines in Santa Ynez, he decided to delve into viticulture. He started with vineyard management and later working at Central Coast Wine Services in 1998.

In 1999, Ryan produced his first vintage, a Cabernet Sauvignon, in his garage from grapes he helped grow, yielding just 10 cases. Encouraged by the positive feedback, he partnered with Andy Kahn to start a vineyard development company and became the assistant winemaker for Kahn Winery. This collaboration allowed Ryan to create his first commercial vintage.

Santa Barbara County

By 2004, Carr Winery was producing over 1,000 cases and gaining national recognition. By 2006, Ryan had built three wineries and planted over 200 acres of grapes in Santa Barbara County. In 2007, he opened Carr Winery in downtown Santa Barbara, one of only four full production wineries and tasting rooms in the area. Since then, Carr Winery has received numerous accolades and awards, cementing its reputation for producing some of Santa Barbara County’s finest wines.

Limited Production Wines

Carr Vineyards and Winery specializes in ultra-premium, limited production wines from Santa Barbara County. Varietals include Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. We are open for wine tasting, wines by the glass, and bottles to go.

Wild Farmlands Foundation

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.

Santa Ynez Chamber of Commerce

The Santa Ynez Chamber of Commerce was officially formed in December 2012. Our goal is to promote and support the wide variety of business activities found in the Township of Santa Ynez.

santa-ynez-chamberJust as in 1882 when Santa Ynez was founded, the Township hosts businesses that serve both local residents and visitors.  Even the Chamber’s founders were surprised to learn that more than 100 businesses call Santa Ynez home. Altogether, these include restaurants, retail shops, professional services, accommodations and contractors.

The Chamber is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors representing a broad cross-section of the business community.

The primary mission of the SY Chamber is to continue to raise awareness of the local business community and all that is available in our hometown simply by working together and supporting each other.

Sunstone Winery

Sunstone Winery, nestled in Santa Ynez, began as a dream for the Rice family in 1989. They sought a place for top-notch organic grapes and found it on their 52-acre ranch. Linda Rice’s vision, sadly cut short in 2010, lives on in Sunstone, now under new ownership with Teddy and Djamila Cabugos joining in 2019 and John and Janna Price in 2021.

sunstone-winery-santa-ynezThe estate’s 28-acre vineyard, planted in 1990, remains one of Santa Barbara County’s oldest continuously organically grown vineyards. Sunstone is not just a winery but a destination, honored by locals and visitors alike for its exceptional wines and inviting ambiance.

The winery’s origins trace back to a converted horse barn, rebuilt into a stunning tasting room in 1994. Surrounded by French lavender and rosemary, Sunstone offers a picturesque setting for wine tasting, with a kitchen, barrel-aging caves, and outdoor spaces for events and picnics.

Director of Winemaking Brittany Rice focuses on Bordeaux and Rhone-style wines, with Sunstone renowned for its Viognier and Syrah. The flagship blend, “Eros,” has received numerous accolades, along with other Sunstone wines consistently rated highly.

The Sunstone Villa

The Sunstone Villa, built by Fred and Linda Rice, stands as a testament to their commitment to authenticity. Constructed with reclaimed materials from France, it offers an intimate setting for Wine Club members to experience the Sunstone lifestyle.

The name “Sunstone” reflects the winery’s connection to sunlight and history, symbolized by a keystone over the tasting room’s entrance. Sunstone’s values center on environmental responsibility, sustainability, and fostering strong relationships with all stakeholders.

Passion for Excellence

Sunstone Winery embodies a family’s passion for winemaking and commitment to excellence. Sunstone offers a place where wine, food, and camaraderie flourish against the backdrop of California’s Central Coast.

Sunstone’s tasting room is reminiscent of some of the small wineries in the Provencal French countryside. The gorgeous courtyards and picnic grounds, surrounded by vineyards, provide the perfect place to experience the wines. Tucked on the edge of the Santa Ynez River, in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine country, Sunstone Vineyards, Winery and Villa is also a beautiful event destination that greets your guests with the delicate fragrance of French lavender and rosemary.
