Overview of the Wine
Set among the rolling hills of the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara California, Larner Vineyard & Winery is a family-owned and operated boutique estate with an extremely limited production of 900 cases per year. The 134-acre property includes 35 acres of grapevines and is one of the showcase vineyards in the recently establish Ballard Canyon AVA. Founded in 1999, the vineyard is currently entering its prime production years and the site is uniquely suited to Rhône Valley varieties. Most of the estate is planted to Syrah, but there is also Grenache, Mourvedre, Viognier and the Italian white Malvasia Bianca. Special pride is taken in producing the highest quality fruit under the most stringent guidelines of custom farming.
