2019 Red Blend
The fruit featured in this Red Blend is farmed from Joughin Vineyard, a long-time partner of Lafond Vineyards and Santa Barbara Winery. The vineyard is part of Joughin Ranch, which belonged to Andy Joughin, the beloved former vineyard manager of Lafond Vineyard/Santa Barbara Winery for 20 years. Though Andy Joughin has passed on, Lafond Vineyard proudly continues to farm and produce award-winning wine from his ranch, still owned by the Joughin family, at the eastern part of the Santa Ynez Valley. This Red Blend was created in his honor, consisting of Syrah, Primitivo, and Lagrein.
