Mention Day Trips and receive 2-for-1 tasting.
Over the past two decades, Bill Foley has worked hard to make his name synonymous with unique and quality wines from Santa Barbara County. After the successful creation of Lincourt Winery in 1996, Foley went on to establish Foley Estates in 2002, adding both Rancho Las Hermanas and Rancho Santa Rosa to his growing portfolio of high quality vineyards.
Located in the heart of the famed Sta. Rita Hills AVA, the temperate coastal climate, south-facing hills and limestone soils amount to the “holy grail” of elements for producing world-class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Foley knew he needed a winemaker who could exemplify this fruit and create wines in their likeness, and vintage after vintage winemaker Lorna Kreutz does just that. With Pinot Noir as her first oenophilic love, Kreutz continues the Foley tradition of producing high quality wines produced from some of the best vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.
Foley focuses on creating wines that embody the uniqueness of the Sta. Rita Hills, and he’s also taken great care in creating a tasting room and event center that allows guests to enjoy being surrounded by the spectacular mountain ranges, coastal oaks and contoured hillside vines.
Over the course of twenty years, Foley has watched his love of wine become a dream that he’s been able to share with
visitors from around the world. Wine Enthusiast magazine’s “Man of the Year” in 2010 is an honor that only further fuels Foley’s commitment to creating quality wines worth sharing.
