About The Winery
Located in northern Santa Barbara County on the Sisquoc River 18 miles east of Santa Maria, California, Rancho Sisquoc is part of an 1852 Spanish land grant. To the Chumash Indians of the area, "Siaquoc" meant "gathering place"--and today Rancho Sisquoc is again a gathering place, this time for wine lovers. The 37,000 acre ranch was purchased in 1952 by James Flood. The cattle business is the same as it has always been, but the beans and barley have been replaced with vegetables and grapevines. Because the area's climate and soil compared favorably with the renowned growing regions of Sonoma and Napa, Flood decided to plant grape vines. The initial planting in 1968 consisted of nine acres of Johannisberg Riesling and four acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Current acreage is 320 and growing.
