Wolff Vineyards Description

Atop a small knoll in the heart of Edna Valley surrounded by hundreds of acres of grapes, is Wolff Vineyards. Creeks, quail, kestrels, red-tail hawks and barn owls grace the location, adding to the wonderful hospitality and tasting experience at Wolf Vineyards.

The winery has very limited production and uses traditional Burgundian winemaking methods. “French new oak, barrel fermentation, sur lie and batonnage are a few of the techniques applied to our wines," says Jean-Pierre Wolff, patriarch and winemaker of Wolf Vineyards.

The new tasting room has a great view along with a patio, gardens, and fountains. The space is spacious, special and charming. Table service adds a bit of flair to your tasting, with family members attending to your tasting needs. The ambiance is gentle and relaxed.

The winery focus is on their estate-grown grapes. The vineyard includes 55 acres of Chardonnay and 37 acres of Pinot Noir grapes. Twelve additional acres are planted to Teroldego (an Italian variety that is very rare in the U.S.), Syrah, Petite Sirah and Riesling. The 30-year-old Chardonnay blocks are dry-farmed, giving the wine a site-specific terroir characteristic. The Pinot Noir blocks are planted on four Dijon clones, adding complexity to the finished wines.

Wolf Vineyard’s grapes are grown using sustainable winegrowing practices, including soil management, integrated pest management, water conservation and energy conservation. Cover crops are used between rows, as are organic soil amendments.

Lovely atmosphere, beautiful surroundings. The wine wasn't bad but a little overpriced. Very much enjoyed talking to the servers behind the bar.

Want to Like it But......
DigitalEye, Santa Barbara
I want to like everything about this place. The tasting room is small but decent, the view is great with grape vines everywhere, the staff was fun and the winery hounds were a real treat. And I love that they are sustainably farmed. The problem here , frankly is the wine, its just so-so. With all those vines and all that land and sun (and cash) there really isnt any reason the wines here aren't fantastic.

Great view!
WineHound, Arroyo Grande
The view across the tasting bar to Edna Valley is unbeatable! You can see at lest four of the Sisters, a regional range of hills that stretches all the way to Morro Rock. But the Wine quality and value are the real treat. Sustainable practices, traditional formulations and real attention to detail have made this family run winery high on my list to bring friends.

I absolutely love the view from the tasting room with the grand window overlooking all the vineyards it's beautiful. Sometimes it can get pretty busy but the attendant is always friendly even if not the most knowledgeable about wine.

Great place
kirkdicanio, simi valley
This was the first time we visited and we will be back. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The wines were some of the best we had in Edna Valley. I was looking for more heavier reds as they are rare in this area, but I foung Brixie's red and their Syrah, with it's peppery taste outstanding. Don't miss this one.

Any place with a dog as mascot can't be bad!!
martytopp, Atlanta
Maybe it's just because we had such a great guide, perhaps it was the scenic drive through the vineyard up to the tasting room, or it could be the warm fuzzies I got from knowing it's a sustainable winery. I don't know but I loved Wolff Winery and their wines. We were served promptly, given informative overviews, and left to taste to our heart's content. The pourer took the time to answer a few of my off the wall questions even with two other groups in there. We absolutely loved the Pinot Noir, so much so we bought a bottle and are having it shipped to us in Georgia! We are looking forward to a special occasion to crack it open and remember our trip to SLO!

Good Lunch Stop
aSLOgal, SanLuis Obispo
This is the place to stop for lunch on your wine tasting outings in SLO/Edna. Bring your picnic and eat at their quaint outdoor patio overlooking gorgeous hills of vineyards. They'll even pour for you while you enjoy the views. As for the wine, I'd say it's average in terms of selection and taste. Nothing I tasted really stood out enough for me to make a purchse but to someone with different taste it could easily be a favorite.
