One of the original vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley and the producer of world-class Sauvignon Blanc wines in a variety of styles, as well as small quantities of hand-crafted Bordeaux-style red wines.
A visit to The Brander Vineyard is somewhat like visiting a small wine estate in Europe. The landscaped grounds of flowers, poplars, cottonwood, and redwood trees, plus a rustic courtyard create an Old World atmosphere of tranquility. The peaked wood-beamed ceilings and tiled floors add to the large French doors which provide an endless vista of the vineyard.
