Sparkie is visiting a winery and vineyard located on 78 acres on the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in the Santa Maria Valley. Built in the mid-1990s, it is perched on a hillside with tables to experience views of the valley.
It was the first winery in Santa Barbara County to build wine caves. Up to 700 wine barrels can be stored in the 6,000 square foot caves.
The winery specializes in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. It was founded in 1988 by the Beko family.
It also hosts special events such as concerts, weddings and birthday celebrations.
