Los Olivos is a wonderful small town where you are likely to run into friends and neighbors at the farmer’s market or the grocery store or walking around town. In Los Olivos, CA. there is an old-world, slower vibe, though it is now home to some amazing restaurants, shops, and hotels.

Grenache is a unique grape variety that shows itself both as a white and as a red. It can make amazing Rosé wines, crisp whites, and even very deep, dark, age-worthy reds. Several Los Olivos area wineries are now making world-class Grenache and Grenache blends, and even a Carbonic Grenache.
Grenache was once the most widely planted grape in the world – often used for blending and table wines. Because of this, the variety had lost favor. With a renewed interest in better clones, better farming and better winemaking, Grenache is now making a comeback…and we have plenty in our charming wine country town of Los Olivos.
