2019 Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills
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, its 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 planted on varied soils at our Lafond Vineyard. Santa Barbara Winery bottles three different Pinot Noirs.
