Pause, Swirl, Breathe Deeply

We host guests by advance reservation and look forward to welcoming you at our private estate.

 

A Dovecote tasting is a uniquely intimate and memorable experience. We are a small family team who are passionate and knowledgable about this special place and the wines we produce. Visits often last 90-120 minutes as you learn the story of our wines, the characteristics of our appellation, and understand our philosophy of purpose through an unfolding journey of the senses.

We purposefully limit the number of visitors to encourage authentic and meaningful conversation with your host. Often, you and your group will enjoy a completely private experience.

Join us and savor the gentle coastal air as you sip handmade estate wines that share a common soul.

We can also be reached by calling or texting us at 805-350-9699 for tasting inquiries.
