In 1976, the Judgment of Paris rated California wines superior to French chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. Since then, the global reputation of our regional wineries has continued to grow, and local misgivings continue to circle the drain. A Mecca for SoCal oenophiles, the lush and fertile Santa Ynez Valley has a temperature similar to wine regions in France. But given that we're in California, a few vintners in the area have decided it's not enough to satisfy the palate, focusing on green-minded farming practices, whether organic, biodynamic, or both. Wine-lovers confront the fruits of the west's environmentally friendly and bountiful viticulture in the Sustainable Vine Wine Tours.
