We are a small Vineyard and Winery located in the Sta. Rita Hills of Santa Barbara County. We organically farm 38 acres of world-class Pinot Noir, Syrah, Gamay and Chardonnay.
As a vineyard-centric producer, we acknowledge the singularity of our terroir demands a dedication to proven Old World techniques of employing only wild yeasts in the cellar; using oak conservatively yet deliberately; fermenting in porous concrete and oak puncheons rather than stainless steel; using sulphur only during post fermentation; and investing in only the finest oak barrels and custom made, large scale Foudres. Inspired by our unique clay soils mixed with ocean sediments; various vineyard sun aspects and orientations; and ‘refrigerated-sunlight’ climate, we are fully committed to our unique and special location. It is this knowledge that motivates us to produce compelling and thought-provoking wines that will pair well with food and age gracefully.Any visitor to Pence will come away with an unparalleled tasting experience led by our Certified Sommeliers and very knowledgeable Hospitality Team. A tour of the property will remind you of the timelessness of old California and the sheer beauty of why this state has attracted travelers for centuries. We hope that you will find a Personal Tasting Experience below that accommodates your interests and be confident that it will match or exceed your expectations.**There are 3 resident ranch dogs at Pence. To best respect them and their space, we do not allow visiting pets on the property. If you are traveling with your pet, please park outside the main gate, with your pet remaining inside your vehicle. Thank you.
