Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nested in the rolling, oak-studded hills of Santa Barbara’s wine country, this beautiful vineyard has earned a reputation for both award-winning fine wine and stellar hospitality. Your wedding includes exclusive use of the entire property, ensuring you'll enjoy the staff's thoughtful care from the moment you step foot on the gorgeous grounds.
  • Framed by two massive oaks and a commanding vista, the Vineyard View Lawn is a dramatic setting for your ceremony. Keep the celebration al fresco by opting for a reception on the breezy Terrace, a grassy open-air courtyard bordered by a grapevine-covered trellis and leafy rows of Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot grapes.
  • The hacienda-inspired winery building offers handsome options for indoor celebrations. The Tasting Room, with its Spanish tile floors and grand fireplace, offers a cozy-casual ambiance, while the dark wood, candelabras, and floor-to-ceiling walls of wine bottles in The Cellar evokes Tuscan-inspired romance.
