Our Pinot sanctuary is located in the northern end of Santa Barbara County where the benchlands gently elevate to the Santa Maria Valley, 17 miles from the Pacific Ocean, affording the Bien Nacido Vineyard well-drained sandy loam from the Elder Shale and Pleasanton series, buffered by the Sierra Madre mountains. Considered one of the coolest growing regions in California, its long sunny days give grapes intense fruit flavors, while the chilly evenings and maritime fog add the complex earthy and herbal flavors ideal for Pinot Noir.

Wine EnthusiastVeteran winemaker Dennis Martin's take on the Miller family's famous vineyard presents pretty aromas of violet, red rose and black raspberry, along with turned earth and wet mushroom. It's soft on the palate, with pomegranate and beet juice, anise and shiitake.
