“A journey always involves wine”
For us, that journey involves wine and its incredible ability as a medium to capture the essence of its origin - the vineyard. On this journey, we strive to express through our fruit the uniqueness and beauty of place and through our wines to capture, for a moment, all that was in a year.
The Traveling Winers on Santa Barbara Wine Trail
This experience is by appointment only. And what an experience it was! We all felt like we arrived as patrons and left as friends.
The owners, Dan Kessler and Ellen Haak Kessler, bought the property in 2005, had their first harvest in 2008 and first bottle in 2009. They started with 140 cases and now are producing about 2,000 cases per year. They have 40 total acres with 30 of that being planted in vines. Their daughter is also involved in that she has a fine arts degree and designed their labels.
Also part of the family are two dogs, a black lab and a golden retriever (sorry puppies, didn’t catch your names!), a
VERY noisy and hilarious Moluccan Cockatoo named Waldo, and the farm little itty bitty toads that were very, VERY loud. It was way cool. Waldo was a riot….laughing, singing, etc.
Dan shared with us his flight of wines paired with cheese, crackers, sausage, grapes. It was quite a nice experience, sharing good wine with new friends and enjoying the night air. We recommend this stop to all! Read our blogs below to learn about each “winers” personal experience!
