We Work Hard To Provide You The Best Quality Wine.
As winemaker for Cordon of Santa Barbara winery, I bring over 25 years of winemaking experience and travels to every vintage of wine. Our wines come from grapes grown in one of the most unique climates in the world. When harvested, they are fermented, aged then finished using traditional and modern techniques. Our vineyard and winery team exclusively work the distinct microclimates of Santa Barbara’s 7 AVAs within the county. These grapes are truly amazing due to the surrounding geography, and it shows in every bottle made. You may even say the grapes are “bien nacido”. A nod to my former employer and one of the best vineyards in the county.
