about river city winery
River City Winery was established in 2011 in Santa Barbara County and is one of the areas finest boutique wineries. Surrounded by vineyards and mountains, the beauty of this amazing winery is as captivating as its Sangiovese. River City Winery’s extraordinary vinter, along with historic vineyards, combine to make wines that express the essence of this famous wine region.
Our amazing white wines, which make great wine gifts, are made only with grapes from our own vineyard and made in an organic, balanced style that is excellent for the environment. We use winemaking techniques that preserve our wines nuances and highlight the special qualities of our red wines. We always harvest our grapes weeks before our neighbors do and often rely on the organic yeasts from our vineyard for fermentation. We believe that making award winning wine is a full circle process that relies equally on organic soil, natural winemaking and doing whats right for the environment.
We feel that our winery is the best vineyard you’ll ever have the opportunity to visit. Our wines are absolutely breath taking and the nice people that work here are incredibly helpful and friendly. The vineyard is open all year, 6 days a week, making it quite convenient to drop by almost any time you need your organic wine fix. In addition to our really amazing wines, we also offer great sandwiches, ice cold beer and mixed drinks. We also have a nice sized indoor seating area and four gorgeous outdoor terraces that overlook our award winning vineyard and the beautiful countryside, which is available to all wine club members. These are amazing places to drink one of our great bottles of wine.
