Located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, Folded Hills Estate Tasting Room at the Homestead is our newest and most anticipated project to date. Tucked behind the coastal mountains of Santa Barbara County, we are the closest winery to the ocean, and your first stop on the way to wine country.

Our award-winning tasting room is in the original dwelling of a simple homesteader, who settled here in 1898. Along with raising animals, planting trees and tending to row crops, he built a hillside vineyard and made pre-Prohibition wine in his basement. The story is so captivating, you can feel it speak through the walls, floors and relics left behind.

The unique restoration we have completed preserves these nostalgic characteristics as well as the organic farm and trees that surround us.

Folded Hills Homestead is a come-as-you-are kind of place. A place where we have serious standards when it comes to our wine, while never taking ourselves too seriously. We are thrilled to have this vineyard location to share it all with you — the wine we make, the food we grow, the animals we raise, and the experiences behind it all.

This tasting room is so welcoming and charming. We felt like we were in someone's home. The farmhouse is right off the 101. The wine is fantastic, super clean, organic and biodynamic natural wine. The wine servers couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We sat outside on the terrace surrounded by organic crops and vines. Walk across the road to see baby animals. This is a not to be missed wine tasting stop!
