Bill Wathen and Dick Doré (the Foxen Boys) have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in Northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time their dedication has remained the same: the creation of small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a straightforward and minimalist approach to winemaking.

The winery is named in memory of William Benjamin Foxen, and English sea captain and Dick’s great-great grandfather. Benjamin Foxen came to Santa Barbara in the early 1800’s and purchased the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in 1837 with a Mexican Land Grant that totaled nearly 9000 acres, that comprised most of what is now known as Foxen Canyon. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive anchor as his ranch cattle brand, which became the trademark of the Foxen Vineyard & Winery. We are proud that we have made our home on the now 2000-acre Rancho Tinaquaic, which remains in family hands.

Purchased by Roger Bower in 2012, Crown Point is an estate winery dedicated to crafting wines of the highest distinction. Nestled in the eastern-most foothills of the east-to-west transverse valley of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA (American Viticultural Area), Crown Point is blessed with distinct climatic conditions and soil types that provide an ideal growing environment for Bordeaux varieties.

Winemaker Adam Henkel joined Roger in 2013. Adam, who spent 10 years in the Napa Valley, including eight years at Harlan Estate in Oakville, had long been fascinated by the viticultural diversity and geographical grandeur of Santa Barbara County. His pursuit at Crown Point has been to express the unique characteristics and individuality of the region’s preeminent vineyards through farming and winemaking at the highest possible level.

Roger engaged Philippe Melka in 2017 as part of his commitment to constant improvement and excellence.

At Crown Point Vineyards, we offer a unique tasting experience to help educate our members and guests as to why our estate is an ideal place for growing Bordeaux varieties. The private tour & tasting allows you to learn how Crown Point was founded, share Roger Bower’s vision for this special property, and experience, first-hand, that no expense has been spared to develop the vineyard and winery. The experience starts with a guided tour through 50 acres of estate vineyards followed by a walking tour through the winery and barrel rooms. The tour finishes with a seated tasting of our estate wines and a cheese pairing.

We will do whatever we can to accommodate friends of Crown Point. All tastings are by appointment only, and we can arrange private visits on a limited basis for members and guests Monday through Friday.

Founded in 1997, Rideau Vineyard has been producing highly-acclaimed, small-lot wines for two decades. Our thirteen acres of estate vines are comprised of five Rhône varietals—Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier, and Roussanne—which are harvested by hand and bottled as highly-expressive blends and varietal wines. We also source from top vineyards in the region to produce additional Rhône and non-Rhône varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, and Malbec. In addition to the unique setting of our historic adobe tasting room, the beautiful picnic grounds attract weekenders and locals alike to relax on the rolling green lawns in the shade of century-old oak trees.

Happy Canyon Vineyard is nestled into the undulating hills of the beautiful Piocho Ranch. The Barracks have taken great pride over the years in being stewards of the land and along with their wine maker Doug Margerum, have created something that is unique to the beauty and richness of the place. Piocho, is a Chumash Indian word meaning “where the two rivers meet and go to heaven”. The ranch is also home to the “Piocho” polo team.

There are the top wines called Barrack Brand, Barrack Blanc and Barrack Ten–Goal and two companion wines; PIOCHO is the champion wine made mostly from Cabernet Franc. There is also a nouveau styled Bordeaux blend released each Easter (perfect with Spring Lamb) called CHUKKER.

Our wines are available on our website and in our new tasting room, located in Santa Barbara at 30 El Paseo, open 12pm - 6pm daily. For a truly special experience, we offer private, by appointment tastings at our ranch and vineyard.
