About This Winery
The name Summerland conjures up visions of warm relaxed days at the beach with plenty of time and few responsibilities. As you sit in the storefront tasting room at Summerland Winery sipping a classic Pinot Noir, you can easily slip into this decadent and hedonistic revere. And why not?
Just a few miles south of Santa Barbara, located on the main drag in the little beachfront berg of Summerland, is the tasting room home of the Summerland Winery Boutique. Look for the two storied building that shares space with art and antique shops. It has bright white pillars and a flagpole out in front. Enter and take a seat at their antique tasting bar, or comfy couch. You can feel the beach air while you peruse their extensive list or browse their gourmet gift shop. The fruit is sourced from a number of the finest vineyards in the central coast area including Bien Nacido, Wolff, Fiddlestix, Santa Rita Hills and Edna Valley. The wine making is done at a custom crush facility in Santa Barbara County by Summerland’s Belgian born winemaker, Etienne Terlinden.
Pinot Noir gets top billing here with 11 different bottlings from the same vintage year. The vineyard designated wines give you the chance to taste the subtle differences of how the soil, climate, trellising, and clone selection affect the resulting wine. Also made are a full range of Bordeaux varietals, and those from the Rhone Valley. Try their rich French Camp Zinfandel or take in the sweet Orange Muscat and enjoy the Summerland experience.↑ Less
