A Piece of Wine Luxury in Santa Ynez

See also



In search of amazing wines, I have found an exclusive and exceptional winery right outside of Los Angeles, Sunstone Winery. This winery is a truly magical experience and give a feel at traveling the French countryside.
Sunstone is a boutique winery named after the vineyard estate’s exposed sun-dappled shale and stones, is the premiere destination winery on the central coast. Located just 30-minutes north of Santa Barbara most visitors would agree, Sunstone is the most beautiful vineyard and winery tasting room on California’s Central Coast.

Sunstone’s twenty-eight acre vineyard, planted in 1990 to Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Viognier is farmed in an organic, bio-sustainable manner, meeting all California Certified Organic Farmer standards. A stand out wine while tasting with winery owner Bion Rice was the Cabernet Franc 2010. This 100% Cabernet Franc is simply stunning with bold fruit and black cherry aromas, the wines really comes alive and balanced.

After meeting with Bion Rice and meeting his staff, I was excited to find a young winery owner and his enthusiastic staff carrying on his family’s tradition in the Santa Ynez Valley.
