Early Harvest in 2014

This year is one of the earliest harvests on record for wine grapes in Santa Barbara county, and we’ve been busy bringing fruit in, hand-sorting, foot-stomping and starting fermentation. We’re fermenting some Pinot Noir in concrete, experimenting with partial new French oak for Syrah, and various other fun tricks up our – and Sashi’s – sleeves. Take a peek below.

Introducing the Pence Ranch Wine Club

Pence Ranch Wine ClubWritten by Blair Pence – 

After several years of investment in our vineyard, coupled with a deep immersion in farming and winemaking, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Pence Ranch Wine Club starting this Spring 2014.

Our accomplished team is already producing impressive small production wines to which members will enjoy guaranteed access. But unlike other wine clubs, the Pence Ranch Wine Club also comes with the unique opportunity to experience the sheer beauty and pastoral nature of Santa Barbara County and the timelessness of old California. Our estate is rich with natural resources and hospitality venues that we intend to share with all our members, including access for picnics and entertaining at the Pond Pavilion and other attractive venues.

Monopole and Lieu-Dit Club Level Members will be invited to enjoy additional site amenities, including our North Camp, a rustic campground tucked amongst the oak forest; miles of private hiking trails and picturesque views; and our Equestrian Arena and Facilities. These members will also have future access to entertain at the 1907 Original Ranch House. Lastly, all Wine Club Members will receive from our Ranch and Farm operations annual complimentary gifts of organically grown food items and consumables produced exclusively for them.

Pence Ranch Wine ClubOur team of Sashi Moorman and Stephen Janes, respectively our Winemaker and General Manager, are working diligently with me to bring you one of the most exciting new wine experiences and destinations to come out of Santa Barbara wine country in years. Our commitment to quality and producing beautiful wines has never been more steadfast nor unwavering and are very confident in the prospects to come. Read more about our team.
