La Encantada lies on Santa Rosa Road, 1 mile from the celebrated Sanford and Benedict Vineyard, some 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean. This newly created appellation, within the larger Santa Barbara AVA sits on a hilly marine influenced corridor over marl and rocky soils. Planted by Richard Sanford in 2000 this certified organic vineyard is located on a ridge which straddles the Santa Ynez River Valley and receives the full impact of the cooling afternoon breezes. A late season pick resulting from the unusually cool vintage of 2011 gave us ripe fruit with firm natural acidity.
