Tucked away between the coastal mountains of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley lies our 600 acre estate, Folded Hills. Folded Hills is built on our desire to preserve this agriculturally rich land while sharing our family’s story and lifestyle through the wine and food that we cultivate.

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.
