Alexander & Wayne Description

Once known as Los Olivos Vintners, Alexander & Wayne Winery produces wines from the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France, plus some sweet offerings and a Port. The winery produces many wines in limited quantities; some bottlings are no more than 50 cases. Wines are sold almost exclusively from the tasting room and through their wine club.

The wines are made at their facility in nearby Buellton from grapes purchased from local growers and include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sweet Riesling and a Botrytis Dessert Wine made from Sauvignon Blanc.

Their new spacious tasting room is across the street from their original Los Olivos tasting venue that was first opened in 1992. With more room, the larger bamboo-wood tasting “island” better accommodates their many visitors. Their gift shop has gourmet items from local producers including pistachios, walnut oils, olive oils, and wine-related items.

Winerific, San Diego
This is a small Central Coast winery producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. There is not a single bad wine on the list-- every single one offers something different. Their wines are full bodied and full flavored and are perfect for every occasion. I am partial towards the Pinot Noir and the Merlot personally. A&W is certainly on my Top 10 for sure! The tasting room is charming and inviting and has a very outgoing and knowledgeable staff: what more could you ask for!!
