Winemaker Notes

"For those weary of oaky and buttery Chardonnay, here is a wine that delivers unmarked Chardonnay flavors and Santa Rita Hills character without over-the-top manipulation.

The first scents out of the glass are a flash back to childhood - honey grahams! This character is derived from the fermentation and aging process, not from the grapes. With new oak impact at an all-time low, one can actually see through the layers and depict the fruit. The grapes contribute caramelized pear qualities and an element of wet stone. Sweet creamed corn, butterscotch and a trace of smoke fill in the layers.

At first introduction, the wine displays bright, refreshing acidity. Flavors of sweet, perfectly ripe oranges and pineapple complement the slightly drying, but desirable character of minerals. This full-flavored wine maintains balance and levity with a bit of spritz. Flavors are long and lingering, with the essence of lemon drop candy providing a memorable send-off."
- Winemaker Kirby Anderson

The Gainey Vineyard, California
The Gainey Vineyard Winery Image
In 1962, Daniel C. and son Daniel J. Gainey purchased an 1,800 acre ranch on the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Gainey Ranch, a combination of cattle, farming, and Arabian horse breeding, became the largest diversified ranching operation in the valley.

Dan J. Gainey retired in 1984 to devote himself to fulfilling his dream of making wine. In 1983, he planted 51 acres of vineyards on the northern boundary of the Gainey Ranch and in November of 1984 the 12,000 square foot Spanish-style winery opened its doors to visitors. Soon after, Dan H. Gainey joined his father and together the father-son team have set out to produce premium, hand-crafted wines made from the best vineyards in Santa Barbara County.

With over 40 years of farming experience behind them, the Gaineys have a connection to the land that few vintners may share. Since the original vineyard planting in 1983, the Gaineys have added 32 acres to their "Home" Ranch, which is primarily planted to the Bordeaux varietals Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In 1996, they purchased 120 acres on the western end of the Santa Ynez Valley, a cooler growing region more suitable for Burgundian varietals. In 1997, they planted 35 acres at this "Santa Rosa Hills" Ranch to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, with plans for further plantings in the years ahead.
