Viticulture

Founded in 1972, Firestone was the first major estate winery to sink roots in the Santa Ynez Valley. The winery’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean, a mere 26 miles to the west, ensures a relatively mild and arid climate throughout the year. The moderate weather and complex, rocky soils make this a perfect setting for our 340 acres of Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundian varieties.

 

Vinification

100% Sauvingnon Blanc fermented and aged in Stainless Steel. Fermenting and ageing in stainless steel allow the capture of the inherent characteristics of the varietal.

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Opens with tropical aromas of pineapple and citrus blossom . The palate further expresses the pineapple and citrus characters, adding notes of guava. It has a bright and lively acidity and should be enjoyed chilled.

Winery Description

Firestone Vineyard began when Leonard Firestone, who started a farm in Santa Barbara County in early 1970, began to grow grapes for wine in the Santa Ynez Valley. Leonard, who is the son of Harvey Firestone, the founder of tire manufacturer Bridgestone, inherited his father’s entrepreneurial spirit and realized that the Santa Ynez Valley, which was not at all recognized as a wine-growing region at the time, had the perfect oceanic climate and soil for growing grapes. Following this realization, he started a vineyard with the aim of raising grapes for major wine producers in the Napa Valley region and elsewhere. Santa Ynez Valley borders the Atlantic Ocean on its west side and is surrounded by mountains in the east. Although there are microclimates for each region, overall the climate is mild throughout the year. This allows the grapes to mature slowly over a long period of time, making for well-balanced fruit.

 After a while, his son Brook and wife Kate joined the business, and as the vineyard began to grow they decided to build their first estate winery in Santa Barbara. In 2007, the Firestone Vineyard joined the Foley Family Wines group, which is formed of many local wine brands in Santa Barbara, and continued its operations.
