“Situated in the Los Olivos District of the Santa Ynez Valley, Vincent Vineyards is an estate vineyard and winery dedicated to making limited production Bordeaux varietal wines. The Family-owned winery is the only producer in the region growing and making wine from all five of the noble red grapes of Bordeaux – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot in addition to Bordeaux’s prominent white grape, Sauvignon Blanc. Vincent also grows Syrah, a red wine grape that originated in the Rhone Valley of France.” The youthful winemaker is Zach Perron and he joins us to gently pull the cork on all that is Vincent Vineyards.
“Established in 2007, Vincent Vineyards is the realized dream of founders Tony and Tanya Vincent, who purchased the 25-acre property with the intent to grow Cabernet and the other Bordeaux varieties they adored. The aesthetic was inspired by the legendary French estate of Chateau Haut Brion- located in Bordeaux. Cuttings for the Bordeaux varietals planted in their vineyard originated there. After much hard work and dedication, the Vincents bottled their first vintage in 2010, and five years later, debuted their stately Vincent Vineyards tasting room amidst 13.5 acres of estate wines.”
“Their wine is 100 per cent estate grown and produced meaning they only use grapes grown right there on the property. All production occurs on the estate, too. Vincent Vineyards produces approximately 2,500 cases annually which qualifies them as a limited production winery.”
The Estate Tasting Room is open 7 days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
