Lafond Winery and Vineyards

6855 Santa Rosa Road

Open: Year Round

Many of the Lafond Winery Wines are produced only in small lots but unlike Santa Barbara Winery, where the small lots are from various and sometimes unusual grapes, these are mostly lots of exceptional Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chardonnay grapes. Some entirely from a particular clone that wine maker, Bruce McGuire, considers exceptional and should be kept separate. These small lots may vary from year to year but Bruce has established, from experience over time, blocks in the vineyard that he refers to as A, B and C, differentiated, for the most part, by soil quality and vigor.

One of the top wineries in the Santa Ynez valley, and one of the only ones with realistic pricing. Their SRH Chardonnays, Pinot Noir a, and Syrahs are some of the best values in the entire region. And a very pleasant tasting room experience without pretense.

Chardonnay is fantastic and Im mostly a Red wine drinker. The Pinots are amazing. The folks here treat you well and they have a great wine club program which we have been involved with now for a few years. Events for the wine club members are always a great time.
