Located at the gateway to Santa Barbara Wine Country, the Santa Maria Valley is the northern most AVA of Santa Barbara County. We understand and celebrate the importance of terroir as a sense of place. Our unique soil and the maritime influence in this region, which is gaining renown for its cool climate and ideal growing conditions, are perfect for producing coveted Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Syrahs, and other varietals of great merit.
The Santa Maria Valley Wine Country Association will work as a single community voice to elevate, protect and promote the premium wines of this historical, coastal growing region. The Santa Maria Valley Wine Country works in tandem within the local community in an effort to promote the Santa Maria Valley wine growing region.
