Pence Vineyards is a small vineyard and winery in the Sta. Rita Hills of Santa Barbara County, producing Estate grown and organically farmed Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay and Syrah. We strive to produce wines that are pure and honest, that reflect the beauty of our property and respect the historic traditions of wine. We see self-reliance as a virtue; growing and producing everything ourselves.
Our winemaking approach follows suit with careful respect for our terroir using native fermentations, gentle extractions of the grapes, avoiding the use of machines, doing everything by-hand and the use of large concrete fermenters and casks. It is our sincere wish that our wines and property transport you to another place; that they are representative not only of their varieties but also of our special site.
