Native9 Wine/Ranchos de Ontiveros

Native9 Wine/Ranchos de Ontiveros

Ranchos de Ontiveros, home of Native9 wines, is a family-owned estate winery in the Santa Maria Valley. Owner, James Ontiveros, is the ninth generation of Alta California, and still farms the same valley that generations of his family have called home. Through the struggle of a cold windswept coast desert, these vines reach for water and nutrients in the depleted earth. When combined with purposeful farming in the cool Mediterranean climate, Santa Maria bears fantastic raw product for winemaking. Our singular goal at Ranchos de Ontiveros is to make wine as complex as the story of how they came to be.


We are pleased to offer guests two unique, private, and curated tasting experiences. On our ranch tour, we will guide your group through our small organically farmed vineyard and delve into the defining qualities of the Santa Maria Valley and our remarkable history within it. This is followed by a seated tasting of our Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon from nearby Santa Ynez Valley. If you are preferring to stay in town, please book our tasting opportunity at Makers Son in Los Alamos. This experience offers a seated tasting of our wines, in the comfort of town.
