Current Winery Clients


 At Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards, we focus on the wines on which Thekla and Richard Sanford built their reputation – the cool growing varietals best suited to the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes predominate and form the core of the Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards product line.



The Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Viognier and Syrah grapes from Sunstone’s certified organic vineyards are crafted by winemaker (and founder Fred and Linda Rice’s son) Bion Rice into wines marked by firm structure with a balanced, sophisticated mouthfeel. Bion strives to translate the unique character of the estate into a wine that is true to the terroir



 Buttonwood Farm is a small gem set amidst the splendor of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Ynez Valley. The farm is a shining example of the vision of our founder, Betty Williams. Betty was always ahead of her time, and in the 60’s set out to create a working farm based on good practices for people, animals and the earth. First there were horses, then organic vegetables and finally, a vineyard.


Located in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, the wines from Westerly begin in the vineyards of small family-owned growers. The relationship between farmer and vintner is vital in our pursuit of crafting the best wines possible. Westerly wines are sourced from a diverse selection of vineyards that have a proven track record of producing low yields, profound character, and the highest quality fruit.


Our wines reflect the place in which they’re grown: the storied Santa Ynez Valley. Every bottle was grown on a single piece of land, the Brave & Maiden Estate.






 Previous Winery Management


The picturesque 105-acre Bridlewood estate rests on a high bench of ancient seabed, facing Pacific breezes that meander through the Santa Ynez Mountains to the South and the Purisma Hills and San Raphael Mountains to the north. The mountains run east-west, allowing the fog to roll in from the Pacific Ocean, which slows the ripening process and paves the way for a long growing season. With more time to mature and develop, the grapes develop a crisp balance between acid and sugar.



When it comes to making wine, the Edna Valley Vineyard team cares about one thing: offering a true expression of California’s Central Coast. Today, the team is building on more than 30 years of tradition at Edna Valley Vineyard, pouring their passion into crafting our distinctive portfolio of fine wines.



For more than 50 years, Columbia Winery has taken a progressive approach to winemaking. Our winery was founded in 1962 by a visionary group of 10 friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors, who realized the potential of growing wine in Washington State, as it has the same latitude as Europe’s best winegrowing regions.


Other Clients

The University has used the Argentine cowboy as a nickname since 1936 when, inspired by Douglas Fairbanks’s performance in the 1927 film The Gaucho, the female student population led a vote to change the mascot from the original Roadrunners.



Established in 1981, the Santa Barbara Triathlon is one of the longest running triathlons in the world. And it’s no wonder: Stunning scenery, flawless operations and an ocean-front transition area and finish line ensure a sell-out event every year. Stick around after the event for children’s beach activities, a fabulous sports expo and convenient on-site dining.
