Located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, Folded Hills Homestead, Winery and Tasting Room 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 beautiful location is 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 finally 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.

Private tastings are currently available by appointment only. Please email [email protected] to arrange.

Open Daily From 11:00am to 5:00pm
