The Brander Vineyard Description

A visit to The Brander Vineyard is somewhat like visiting a small wine estate in Europe. The landscaped grounds of flowers, poplars, cottonwood, and redwood trees, plus a rustic courtyard create an Old World atmosphere of tranquility.

The peaked wood-beamed ceilings and tiled floors add to the large French doors which provide an endless vista of the vineyard. The three flags of Argentina, Sweden and the United States flying over the pink Chateau reinforce the international background of the Brander family.

There is a very casual feel to this winery. It reminded me of France or Italy. The sales staff was pleasant and not pushy. There were some great white wines at reasonable prices. My kids liked playing around the fountain near the tasting room. There was a nice farm across the street with some excellent olive oil.

I would highly recommend this winery to everyone visiting the Santa Ynez Valley!! I absolutely love and adore this winery. They specialize in Bordeaux and have world class Sauvignon Blanc wines. They offer two labels at this vineyard: Domaine Santa Barbara and the Brander label. Both are unique in their own way. This is definitely a must-stop on your SYV trip.
