Pardon the dust...

It's with great pleasure we're announcing the opening of our public tasting room at the heart of Los Olivos, CA in the Santa Ynez Valley!

While the Central Coast is often overlooked as a destination, we've set our roots deep into the community over the past 15+ years and count ourselves lucky to call the Santa Ynez Valley home.

We're putting the finishing touches on what we aim to be a gathering spot for locals, a welcoming introduction to our brand for wine aficionados & a staple for all to experience while in our small town.

A look back on the prior year:

2021 St. Avalo Nero d'Avola

Estate reds are released! We can't be more excited to release the first vintages of our 2021 + 2022 estate harvests. Given our unique location in Central California, we experience cold colds & warm warms. A morning fog usually embraces the valley while experience summer highs that closely resemble terroirs of Italian regions—hence Italian grape varietals taking well to our vineyard.

Now that we finally have a well-rounded offering of wines, we have something for every palette & look forward to introducing you to wines from the old world; cultivated from our own estate here in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Throughout 2023 we sponsored a half-dozen events & poured our wines for many folks with great feedback. Additionally, we submitted our 3 white wines into 2 competitions, winning medals for both our 2021 Vermentino & 2021 Pinot Grigio.

With such a warm reception to market, we decided the timing was right to open doors to the public—and what spot better than downtown Los Olivos?

So what is next?

We plan a soft launch of the tasting room later this month as we put on some finishing touches, and welcome you all to come by! As we're still aging some of our more mature wines, we have plenty more in store for you but we're quite pleased with the feedback we've received thus far.

For those of you living further than a hop, skip & a jump away, please join us in celebration by having our wines shipped to your doorstep. For those of you who are not yet Wine Club members, be sure you use our new year's promo code: "ECCO" (active through Valentine's Day 😉) & remember—shipping is on the house with orders of 6 or more bottles.

Stay tuned for our grand opening & all the fun we have in store for 2024...
