Santa Maria Valley Wine VideoThe Santa Maria Valley wine region is home to one of California’s longest growing seasons.

The influence of California’s Pacific coast helps the region produce wines that are in harmony, keeping the sugar/acid balance in in check.

The unique east-west orientation channels cool ocean air directly into the Santa Maria Valley and helps the region make exceptional Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Syrahs, the crown jewels of the valley.

Combine all of these factors and you will see why wine experts are calling the Santa Maria Valley one of the most dynamic wine regions with growing seasons to match!
