Sta. Rita Hills viticultural appellation is uniquely situated to
receive the maritime influences that create the ideal climate for
the growing of exceptional winegrapes. Inspired by the incredible
potential offered within this wine region, a diverse group of talented
growers and winemakers are producing some of California’s
most exciting Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and other varietals. As with
any new region, the winegrowers and winemakers have developed a
camaraderie stemming from their love of this region and the excitement
of the achievements made thus far. We hope through this website
we can offer the interested wine lover a glimpse into our small
but exceptional corner of the wine world.
Sta. Rita Hills is a relatively small appellation of approximately
100 square miles. Intersected by the Santa Ynez River, the cool
climate appellation is located between the towns of Buellton and
Lompoc in Santa Barbara County, California. The Sta. Rita Hills
Winegrowers Alliance includes both vineyards located within the
geographical boundaries of the appellation, and those who craft
wines from grapes grown here.
