Foxen Canyon Wine Trail

Foxen Canyon Wine TrainThe Santa Maria Valley & Foxen Canyon Wine Trail are often foggy and windswept

offering up one of California's longest grape growing seasons and is the northern most appellation in the Santa Barbara County. This enjoys extremely complex soil conditions and diverse micro climates.

The unusually long “hang-time”, and we ain’t talkin’ Michael Jordan, is the Pacific's doing, with cool maritime breezes pouring into this appellation with a relentlessness matched only by the desire of each individual cluster to ripen to full maturity.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, two varietals especially amenable to the ocean's influence, are the flagship wines of this region. Explore the Santa Maria Valley or mosey on down the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, a California Poppy Highway, and discover the hidden treasures that await you.
