Kimsey Vineyards - Santa Barbara Winemakers

In 2008, William and Nancy Kimsey established a small, 22-acre vineyard in the Ballard Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara County. The development of this vineyard was a purposeful one. Devotees of pleasurable, cerebral wines, Bill and Nancy had long searched for a site amenable to growing grape varieties they found most compelling; namely several found in the Rhone region of France; syrah, grenache, viognier and roussanne.

Today, the Kimsey estate vineyard terroir has proven itself cordial to these enduring varieties.

In establishing our estate vineyard, we surrounded ourselves with people who seek the highest level of quality in all they do. Our wines, then, are a reflection of their hard work and our own willingness to push ourselves to achieve greatness over time with this project.

It was planted by the esteemed farming company, Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, under the careful guidance of Matt Dees and Ruben Solarzano. It is planted in the "field blend" tradition and includes the following varieties:
