The Vineyard House
This Victorian House dates back to the days when the Santa Ynez Valley was home to many varieties of wild game, and the current vineyards that now produce some of the finest grapes and wines in the world, were just a dream. The first farmers in this valley settled their families on the fertile land that was later to become known as the western town of Santa Ynez. Although they found summers to be very hot and rain scarce, they toiled from sunup 'til sundown to produce some of the most wonderful fruits, herbs and vegetables. By redirecting water from the Santa Ynez river, where steelhead trout at one time made their way clear to the summit of San Marcos Pass, they were able to irrigate this land and to prosper when others couldn't! Today we are fortunate to have their luck and to enjoy the herbs from our garden and the fresh produce from our local farmers in order to prepare for you a delicious, home cooked meal. We hope you enjoy your stay and have a truly memorable evening!
