Kalyra Winery $10
Kalyra is a translation from the Australian Aboriginal meaning ‘A Wild and Pleasant Place.’ Owner and wine maker Mike Brown hails from Adelaide, Australia. In Old World meets New World style, all wines are created with pride, imagination and flair. Kalyra is known for fruity and crisp White wines, bold Reds and a full line of sweet Dessert Wines, including the award-winning Rare Tawny.
Kalyra Winery offers a laid-back beachcomber’s vibe with some of the most sweeping views in the Santa Barbara wine country. Kalyra’s vineyards were planted in 1968 as part of the original ‘Vina de Santa Inez,’ what many credit as the inaugural vineyard in Santa Barbara County.
In the early 1970s, an Italian stonemason created a masterwork: a world class Arabian horse farm, replete with a 36-stall brick barn. After nearly 40 years, the barn was transformed into a gorgeous wine tasting room for the community and visitors to enjoy. The 35-acre Brick Barn estate vineyard lies just north of the Santa Ynez River in a largely unexplored winegrowing corridor near the city of Buellton.The vineyard’s south-facing orientation is unique in our area. With the Pacific Ocean just 10 miles away, the marine influence is forceful yet solar exposure remains persistent—a providential combination that produces fruit with extraordinary dimension. White varieties are planted to the river basin, where sandy soils produce assertive aromas and tenacious acidity. Red varieties unfold along an upper highland, where rocky loam and limestone soils impart qualities of intensity and finesse. The back hills of our historic ranch remain untamed, inhabited by ancient oaks, wild pigs, red tail hawks and other wildlife. We farm our vineyard with an unconditional respect for nature, and we believe that the native beauty of this land speaks through our wines.
At Brick Barn, we make the wines we love and grow the grapes that inspire us.
Brick Barn specializes in unique white wines such as Albariño, Vermentino, and Grenache Blanc while maintaining the high quality standards of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir this area is known for. We are able to grow a wide variety of reds that are expressive of our terroir, as well. White and red wine lovers alike will find something for their palates here!

Situated on the celebrated Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in the Santa Ynez Valley, Koehler Winery is located in one of Californias most diverse and distinctive growing regions. The micro-climatic diversity on the 100 acre estate results in a superb quality of fruit, and Koehler 30 year old vines are recognized as among the best in the Santa Ynez Valley and surrounding area.
When Kory Koehler acquired the property in 1997, all of the estate grapes were being sold to local wineries. Koehler soon recognized that some the best wines in the valley were being produced with grapes harvested from their vineyards , and she resolved to launch her own winery and tasting room. From the start, Kory Koehler’s vision was to create a world-class winery committed to making premium wines at affordable prices. Koehler began by turning the property over to one of the most skilled and knowledgeable vineyard managers in central California, Felipe Hernandez. Felipe painstakingly tends the sixty- seven acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Viognier and Grenache Blanc.
Koehler Winery’s inviting tasting room is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Guests can sip their wine underneath canopies of beautiful eucalyptus, oak and pepper trees, surrounded by the entertaining menagerie of rams, sheep, goats and emus. Life at Koehler Winery is truly an experience.
