Larner produces limited production and ultra-premium wines from grapes varieties including Rhône varieties Syrah, Grenache. Mourvedre and Viognier. As a small tribute to Italy, the Larners also have one block of Malvasia Bianca.

ABOUT THE LARK:
The Lark pays homage to the history of California train travel and tributes the treasured and long gone Santa Barbara Fish Market. Built in the 1920’s, the original commercial fish processing plant shipped their seafood products throughout the state by rail. With an imaginative yet approachable menu created by the gifted Jason Paluska, The Lark celebrates everything found around Santa Barbara County – wineries, farms, ocean and natural beauty. The stunning design strives to connect to the past and the future, using discovered objects from the past and blending them with modern, urban and industrial materials to spectacular effect.
ABOUT LARNER WINES:
Michael Larner is not only a member of the Santa Barbara’s Vintners Association, but he was also an integral founder of the group that proposed the Ballard County AVA. Although Ballard Canyon is located in the Santa Ynez AVA, its unique soils and climate help to produce distinguishing red grape wines, such as Syrah, Grenache, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc and white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Roussanne, which allow it to have its own AVA.
