Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards
Open daily 11am - 5:30pm
The Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards tasting room offers guests a wide variety of wines to choose from. They craft an impressive array of wines from 26 grape varieties that are grown on their 400 estate acres in Santa Barbara County’s three distinct microclimates, creating a diversity of wine styles to suit every taste preference.
The warm climate Valley View Vineyard is a perfect location for their Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, while their cool climate Goodchild Vineyard produces award winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Lucas & Lewellen produces one of the few local “Méthode Traditionelle” style sparkling wines on the Central Coast. All Lucas & Lewellen estate vineyards are handpicked and grown using sustainable farming methods.
Often, you will see owners Louis Lucas or Royce Lewellen pouring wine in the tasting room. The Director of Winemaking, Megan McGrath Gates, was educated locally and grew up in the Santa Ynez Valley.
