Wine & Fire

August 15 – 17, 2014

The Sta. Rita Hills Winegrowers Alliance is composed of over 50 producer and grower members who carefully craft their wines to be expressive of our unique AVA. The upcoming Wine and Fire event being held in August  will offer guests an opportunity to meet Alliance members and experience the wines from this very cool region. Highlights will include a Friday Night Barn Party Paulee, a Saturday morning seminar and a Saturday evening Grand Tasting at La Purisima Mission.

Plans are underway for our annual Wine and Fire event. Spend three days in the Hills exploring and learning about our AVA, meeting our members and enjoying our wines and hospitality. Tickets are available now so plan now for 2014 Wine and Fire (Click here to purchase)!

We are offering exclusive barrel tastings before the Wine & Fire Kick Off Barn Party from 3:45-4:45 PM at our winery located adjacent to the our historic Sanford and Benedict Barn. Come enjoy a selection of our most premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir samples straight from the barrel, hosted by the people that make our wine! Our winemaking staff will guide you through a fun and educational tasting experience, comparing and contrasting different Pinot Noir clones and new vs. old wine barrels.
