Brick Barn Wine Estate
Brick Barn Wine Estate stands at a winegrowing frontier unto itself in the western Santa Ynez Valley producing wines of singularity and heritage. Since the 1800s, our property has been a place of farming, ranching, equestrianism and entrepreneurship. The 35-acre Brick Barn estate vineyard lies just north of the Santa Ynez River in a largely unexplored winegrowing corridor near the city of Buellton.
The vineyard’s south-facing orientation is unique in our area. With the Pacific Ocean just 10 miles away, the marine influence is forceful yet solar exposure remains persistent—a providential combination that produces fruit with extraordinary dimension.
White varieties are planted to the river basin, where sandy soils produce assertive aromas and tenacious acidity. Red varieties unfold along an upper highland, where rocky loam and limestone soils impart qualities of intensity and finesse.
The back hills of our historic ranch remain untamed, inhabited by ancient oaks, indigenous pigs, red tail hawks and other wildlife. We farm our vineyard with an unconditional respect for nature, and we believe that the native beauty of this land speaks through our wines. We now fulfill its destiny as a premium wine estate.
