Winemaker Kristin Bryden holding a glass of wine in the barrel room


Our incredible winemaking team is spearheaded by Head Winemaker & General Manager Kristin Bryden. Bryden completed her first harvest in 2002 and is excited about the opportunity to expand her winemaking prowess into Burgundian varietals sourced from some of Santa Barbara County’s most esteemed vineyards. Associate Winemaker Andrew Keil shares Kristin’s excitement to explore the diverse vineyards in the region and to focus strictly on two of the world’s classiest - and sometimes sassiest - varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
