Hitching Post Hometown Pinot Noir (375ML half-bottle) 2019
Hometown is an early bottling of the Santa Barbara cuvee and showcases the delicious fruit of young Pinot Noir. This three valley blend is made from grapes we source from vineyards near Los Alamos, Santa Maria and Sta. Rita Hills.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Pinot Noir is the second-most planted grape in Santa Barbara County, just behind Chardonnay. It thrives in cooler areas of the region, namely in the of the Sta. Rita Hills, which is part of Santa Barbara’s larger Santa Ynez Valley sub-appellation. Thought for decades to be too cool for viticulture, Sta. Rita Hills began to gain notoriety in the 1970’s, thanks to the pioneering work of Richard Sandford and Michael Benedict, among others.
Santa Barbara Pinot Noir dances across the palate with vivid red fruit and spice. Precision, bright acidity, elegance and fruit-driven silkiness make Santa Barbara Pinot delightfully enjoyable, whether on their own or with a variety of dishes.
