Maybe you're wine tasting in Santa Ynez Wine Country for the first time, or perhaps you're a veteran Santa Ynez wine tasting aficionado. Either way our new Los Olivos tasting room has something unique to offer.
Cimarone and 3CV wines are handcrafted from estate grapes grown on Three Creek Vineyard. Three Creek is part of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA, a recently approved "American Viticulture Area" which is getting great reviews and attention for its Bordeaux and Rhone varieties. Cimarone is the first (and only) winery dedicated to wine made exclusively from Happy Canyon fruit to open a tasting room in the charming town of Los Olivos.
While many older Santa Ynez wineries are focused on Rhone and Burgundy varieties, we are intensely devoted to grapes hailing from Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc). Our Happy Canyon climate and terroir are ideally suited for their optimal growth, mirroring geologic and temperate elements of Napa and Bordeaux. Cimarone also features a lovely Sangiovese because the feisty Italian loves our terroir as well.
Don't be fooled by our youth...major wine critics such as Steve Heimoff of Wine Enthusiast Magazine have already awarded scores of 90,91 and 92 for our efforts, In fact, Mr.Heimoff called us "A brand to watch." But the best judge is always your own palate, so come sample the fruits of our labors for yourself!
