Founded by Gretchen Voelcker, Luna Hart Wines is a boutique wine company specializing in small batch, handcrafted wines in the Santa Ynez Valley. Gretchen makes select wines in which she explores the techniques and nuances that continue to stoke her passion for wine.
Aiming to work with organic, biodynamic or sustainable fruit, Gretchen seeks the highest quality grapes. With her winemaking style, she discovers vineyards that truly represent a unique terrior and produce grapes that hold varietally true.
With careful attention to the fruit in the vineyard and tasting daily throughout fermentation, Gretchen produces high quality, fruit forward wines with bright acidity. Her hope is to highlight the grape's origin, the vintage and variety. She focuses on producing varietal wines from her favorite grapes that spur her to learn more about winemaking and to showcase them more purely and more precisely. Gretchen never turns down the opportunity to experiment and welcomes interesting projects.

Established in 2018, Piazza Family Wines is a small family owned vineyard and winery located in Ballard Canyon.

We know that great wines are not made in the cellar but in the vineyard. We intentionally aim to showcase the unique qualities of place with the wines; hand crafting them to represent the soil, climate and varietal for each vintage. With a focus on the vineyard, we follow organic farming practices. This can ensure that each harvest yields the best possible grapes for that vintage and gives a true representation of their unique Ballard Canyon terroir, all while respecting the land and nourishing it for future generations.

In the winery, Winemaker Gretchen Voelcker focuses on minimal intervention and allows for the grapes to speak for themselves. She listens to the clues of harvest and picks the grapes at optimal times for balance and complexity.

Tastings are conducted with the winemaker and are by appointment only. Call or visit piazzafamilywines.com to visit us today!

F2 Wines was founded by German expatriate Max Hoetzel - a former writer and photographer, who in 2013 found himself living amidst a vineyard in Santa Ynez. With the help of winemaker Steve Clifton he started making exciting Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. With the philosophy that great farming is the beginning of great wine, Max lets the fruit shine, keeping the winemaking process in the winery as minimal as possible.
