2017 Reserve Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills

Sustainability in Practice Certified Wine (SIP Certified)

Sta. Rita Hills has achieved national acclaim for the region's Pinot Noirs. It's a finicky grape. While warm days and cool nights are essential for Pinot's development, the grape's delicacy is maintained by a daily layer of maritime fog which protects it from frost or penetrating sunlight.

Pinot Noir is very important to Santa Barbara Winery. We have many blocks on varied soils planted at our Lafond Vineyard. Santa Barbara Winery bottles three different Pinot Noirs.
