“On a beautiful high mesa”

The ten-acre Carhartt Vineyard sits high on a mesa with maximum sun exposure and a soil structure that lends itself to the production of outstanding fruit. Planted in 1996, the vineyard is situated in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley appellation (AVA), blessed with a climate that is particularly suited to Rhône and Bordeaux varietals. The cool mornings quickly move into hot, sunny days that remain warm until sundown. The growing season is long, often stretching into late November, which allows the grapes to fully ripen and achieve their optimal balance of sugars, acids and spicy flavors.

The Traveling Winers on Santa Barbara Wine Trail

Cute, Cute, Cute! Carhartt Tasting Room, located in Los Olivos, California is known as the “smallest tasting room in the world”. And it IS small! Tiny, tiny bar…don’t blink as you walk through the front door and out the back as you might miss the hosts! The back patio area, however, is quite spacious and inviting with awesome barrel stave patio furniture.

The Carhartt’s started the winery back in 1998 with 2 barrels. They now produce about 5,000 cases per year, all exclusively sold at their itty bitty tasting room and through their wine club. They have two vineyards and use about 50% estate grapes and 50% sourced. They are a small family owned operation and like to call it the “ground to glass concept”, meaning they do everything from grow, make, bottle, label, and pour.

This was a very fun experience! We met with Joe, the wine club manager, and Evan, staff, host, family friend since about 5-years old. Really nice, fun and friendly guys! Good wine too!! Oh…and for a bit of history, the little room/building/shack they are in used to be a ticket booth for the stage coach back in the days of old. This place may be small, but its personality and history are HUGE…so don’t miss this one!

This is one of my favorite tasting rooms in the valley. It's totally small, that's true, but they have good wine, a great patio with a water fountain, rustic furniture and super friendly atmosphere. I wasn't expecting a tasting room playing the Black Keys, filled with 20 and 30 somethings. Ha. I documented some of the other nearby gems as well in case it's of use to you: http://trysomethingfun.com/los-olivos-wine-tasting-getaway/
