Deliberate. Historic. Sublime.

Winemaker Justin Willett and grower/owner James Ontiveros are at the top of their game with these Native9 Wines, a style Doug Wilder from the Purely Domestic Wine Report calls out as ‘extraordinary’ (10/2022) (rating the current wines 95-98 points.) Tours are conducted by Wes Hagen, who has grown and made wine in Santa Barbara for 30 years and researched and wrote most of the American Viticultural Areas in Santa Barbara History. Expect elegant, deliberate wines of time and place and a level of hospitality that will surprise and delight the wine newbie all the way to a Master Somm. Wine and Spirits Top 100 Wineries of the World: 2021.

Rancho Ontiveros

Established in 1781. James Ontiveros’ ancestor, Josef Ontiveros came from Avila Spain, through Sinaloa, MX, Loreto, Baja and into San Diego and Los Angeles with the Reyes expedition in 1781. The family landed in Santa Maria in 1855, and farming, ranching, cattle and grapes have been part of their family since the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Come hear and taste the whole story.”

Dovecote Ranch and Estate Winery

Dovecote Ranch and Estate Winery is dedicated to growing and crafting wines that allow the beauty and character of our land to speak through them.

Dovecote Wines

Dovecote Wines are completely farmed and made by hand with a deep respect and love for their origin. They are meant as an ode to our family’s gratitude in calling this special place home. In their creation, it is our hope that our lives contribute to their meaning, and their meaning contribute to the lives of those we share them with.

The Nichols Brothers

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.

Story of Soil Winery

As a small winery, Story of Soil, we can put more time, attention, and care into our wines (than the larger wineries can afford to, really). To make wines of the highest quality, we select vineyards that are farmed with the greatest level of care.

Single Vineyard Focus

We focus on single varietal and single vineyard. Single vineyard allows us to focus on “the place” the grapes are farmed and single varietal will show how each varietal is affected by that place (i.e. soil and microclimate).

Winegrowers Alliance

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.

Sta. Rita Hills American Viticulture Appellation (AMA)

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.

Alliance Mission

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.

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.

Hands On Honest Winemaking

In 2012 Will Henry and Lane Tanner ran into each other in the Santa Maria Valley, and realized that they shared a common vision: to make wines from the best cool-climate vineyards in Santa Barbara County, and to follow a regimen consistent with California’s early days of hands-on, honest winemaking in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Memorable Wines

The duo asserts that the most balanced (and thus memorable) wines are made from fruit that is picked relatively early on the harvest calendar, the end result being a wine that is livelier on the palate, deeper in complexity, lower in alcohol, and more worthy of cellaring.

Clean Slate Wine Bar – Wine, Beer, and Food

Clean Slate Wine Bar features small production local wines as well as craft beers on tap. Wines and beers rotate quickly, and you never know what you’ll find. Bring your curiosity and come on in to sip something completely new.

Chef Melissa

Chef Melissa is from Louisiana, and her Cajun-accented cooking is so market-driven that the menu changes daily. She creates a collection of small plates and shareable dishes inspired by the freshest ingredients and whatever is currently in season. Come early, before it’s all gone, ‘cause we have been known to run out of food.

Clean the Slate

And when something runs out because the wine was limited production, the farmer sold out of produce, the beer was brewed in a small batch, or the local fisherman only caught so much, we “clean the slate” and start fresh. There’s always something new to try.

Since we opened, we’ve built a reputation as an inviting spot to experience the best of California Central Coast’s food and wine. Come and join us and hang out for a while.

No reservations necessary. We’re walk-in only. No time limit on tables, we want you to hang out and enjoy yourselves.

Lions Peak

A family-owned and operated winery, producing distinctive, premium wines dating back to 1994, old vine Cabernet Sauvignon.  We use natural and sustainable winemaking practices that support health- and environmental-conscious consumers and work to preserve the land for future generations.

Best of Class

Beginning in the early 1990s, producing highly acclaimed, ultra-premium wines has been Jennifer’s passion since her first commercially produced wines won “Best of Class” at the LA County Fair. Since then, she has won many other gold and best-of-class wines.

Jennifer’s mantra is: Lions Peak wines should be joyfully shared with family and friends.  We invite you to taste our diverse portfolio of unique, ultra-premium wines, enjoy their “top-shelf” quality for yourself, and become an active member of our lively community of Lions Peak wine enthusiasts.

Skyview Los Alamos is a new hotel born from an original 1950’s motel overlooking the quaint town of Los Alamos. Set just off California’s iconic Highway 101, the boutique property features 33 rooms, including two spacious suites and 16 deluxe rooms with fireplaces and private decks overlooking the rolling hills of Santa Barbara wine country. The five-acre hilltop property includes a full-service restaurant, a small spa, a working vineyard, edible gardens and restored 1950’s era pool. The hotel’s original midcentury architecture was updated to a modern rustic aesthetic and softened with luxury trimmings: flat panel televisions, down duvets, leather club chairs and marble-clad bathrooms with organic small batch amenities. A full-service bar and restaurant serves local wines, herb-infused cocktails and farm-fresh fare with nods to the western roots of Los Alamos.
