The beaches are backed by an unusual mountain configuration with an east-west orientation forming valleys that open directly to the Pacific Ocean. It is the longest east-west traverse from the Aleutian Islands to Tierra Del Fuego. This unique topography allows the inland flow of fog and ocean breezes to shape one of the coolest winegrowing regions in California and create an ideal environment for the cultivation of classic grape varietals. The growing season here is considerably longer than other wine producing areas, meaning the fruit has an unusually long “hang time” on the vine. This makes for world class wines of distinctive character. Within Santa Barbara County there are five federally recognized American Viticultural Areas (AVA): Santa Maria Valley, Santa Ynez Valley, Sta. Rita Hills, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, and Ballard Canyon. Santa Maria Valley The often foggy and windswept Santa Maria Valley is the northern most appellation in Santa Barbara County. The region’s first officially approved American Viticultural Area (AVA) enjoys extremely complex soil conditions and diverse microclimates. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are two varietals which especially benefit from the ocean’s influence, and are the flagship wines of this appellation. Santa Ynez Valley Santa Ynez Valley is a long, east-west corridor with very cool temperatures on the coast that become progressively warmer inland. Consequently, several varietals do well from Pinot Noir in the west to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the east. Several Rhône and Italian grape varietals have also gained acclaim in this versatile Santa Barbara County AVA. The largest concentration of wineries is in the Santa Ynez Valley appellation. From one-person labors of love to multi-thousand case operations, each has a dedication to producing wine that truly reflects the high quality and broad diversity of local grapes. Sta. Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills is an AVA within the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. Located on the far western end of the long corridor, the marine influence is directly off the ocean providing an extremely cool climate. It is an optimal place to grow its hallmark Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. HAPPY CANYON OF SANTA BARBARA Happy Canyon is a relatively new winegrowing region recently granted its own AVA. Located in the far eastern edge of the Santa Ynez Valley AVA, it delves into the San Rafael Mountains just northwest of Lake Cachuma. Its inland position means a significantly warmer climate. This region is best suited for growing Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc. BALLARD CANYON Ballard Canyon became the fifth official AVA of Santa Barbara County on October 30th 2013. The 7,800 acre viticultural area’s soils and climate is known for producing distinctive and unique wines, a preponderance of which are Rhône varietals.

Thurs – Sun 10am to 5pm. 805-736-1600; www.zotovichcellars.com 29 / SANTA BARBARA WINE COUNTRY Take it EASY VINEYARDS Allan Hancock College Vineyard ( 1 ) Plan ahead. Map out a route, checking tasting room hours. The two wineries you’d most like to visit may be 50 miles apart. You’ll also notice that some wineries house their tasting rooms in our small towns while others have chosen retail wine bars and shops to be their official tasting rooms, so your favorites may be right next door to each other. Whether its 50 miles or 50 feet, remember: four or five wineries is still a full day. Most tasting rooms charge for sampling wines. ( 2 ) There is usually something special happening in wine country year round. Check the Association web site for a listing of events at sbcountywines.com. ( 3 ) Please drive carefully and courteously. The pace here is a little slower, so relax and enjoy the drive. It’s part of the experience. There’s no telling when a covey of quail will dart across the road. ( 4 ) A designated driver is encouraged to ensure safety on the road. Over-imbibers will not be served, even if you’re not driving. It’s the law. There are many transportation companies throughout Santa Barbara Wine Country if you prefer to leave the driving to someone else. ( 5 ) Gas up before you head out to the country. It may be a long distance between service stations. With that in mind, you may want to bring a picnic lunch. Most wineries do not serve food, but many have beautiful picnic areas. There are also wonderful places to dine in town, some with outdoor seating. ( 6 ) An overnight stay is always recommended. There are a lot of places to stay when you visit Santa Barbara County – from hotels on the beach, to spa resorts in the countryside to places in town. Great wine starts in the vineyard with great grapes. Blessed with excellent climate, soil and topography, and guided by their care and concern for the land, Santa Barbara County’s winegrowers bring modern growing methods to the age-old art of viticulture, producing some of the finest wine grapes in the world.
