K&S Comments:

“Known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay so be prepared to CA Burgundy. Well made wines but not “ultra-boutiquey” so you can actually find this wine in stores and restaurants. The quality in the wines is much appreciated and the variety within just their Pinot Noirs is fantastic. This is a great 2nd stop while urban bobbing around Santa Barbara.”
