Nielson vineyard, Santa Barbara County
Nielson Santa Barbara Pinot Noir
Santa Barbara, California
Winemaker: Ryan Pace

When a man plants a vineyard where, by all rights, no vineyard should be planted, it’s seen as folly. When the vineyard becomes one of the world’s best sites for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it’s called vision. We are guided by the pioneering spirit of our namesake, Uriel J. Nielson, who planted Santa Barbara’s first commercial vineyard in 1964. Our Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays express the purity, freshness and vibrancy of Santa Barbara County, and the screwcap closure makes our wines adventure ready, wherever the road less traveled takes you.
