Lane Tanner

What do you get when you blend a wry sense of humor with pixy good looks and a yen for chemistry... In the madcap life script that Fate wrote for Lane Tanner, you get a Bette Midler in the Bottle, a winemaking woman who started her own brand in the earliest days of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir ... and lots of laughs.

Griffin Family Vineyards

Exclusive boutique wines, grown on the hillsides of Malibu. Picking begins at sunrise in the cool of the morning. Immediately after harvest, chilled grapes are shipped to Etienne’s facilities in Santa Maria, CA for careful shepherding into a wine that expresses the fabulous potential of our Malibu site.

Edna Valley Vineyard

Delicious! I really enjoyed the tasting and found that there wasn't a "bad grape in the bunch"! Also the staff was awesome. The woman that we worked with was exceptional; personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and dare I say- passionate about the vino.

Also, they have a really neat little demonstration vineyard outside the tasting room where guests are invited to take a self-guided tour to see different varieties of grapes growing on different trellis styles. It was early spring when we were here- and I hope to return when the grape get bigger and when I can see the variation between them better as they are bearing fruit.

Smith & Hook

Three glasses of wine

Today Smith & Hook continues to produce its signature varietal-Cabernet Sauvignon. The bottle, with its ‘ranch brand’ emblazoned directly onto the bottles, reflects the heritage of Smith & Hook wines and the Hahn winery. Hand-crafted by winemaker Paul Clifton, the wine echoes the pioneering spirit of the Hahn Family and their commitment to Monterey winegrowing.

Turley Wine Cellars

Some mixed reviews from some visitors on the service during the visit. Nevertheless, most agree that Miss Turley produces some very nice Zins. Turley wines are often recognized as making some of the best, if not the best Zinfandel in California for decades. There is a two year waiting list for new recipients into their wine club last we checked.

Alapay Cellars

Alapay owners Scott and Rebecca Remmenga are passionate about their wines and giving each customer personalized attention within an approachable, relaxing, non-intimidating setting. Alapay does not distribute to wholesalers, restaurants or wine shops, so you will only find these special wines in their seaside wine cellar. They pride themselves on being part of the total wine production process and being "hands-on winemakers".
