Wine tasting in Santa Barbara County for best wines

Blair Fox Cellars is passionate about the production of small lot, hand crafted bottlings of wines from the most premium vineyards in Santa Barbara County. All these wines are vineyard designated and you can truly taste the "terroir" in each glass.

We search for vineyards, which produce grapes with beautiful concentration and intense varietal character. These grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted, fermented in small lots, and basket pressed to ensure the highest possible quality and true expression of the vineyard.

We produce predominately vineyard designated Syrah, estate grown Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Vermentino, and a small amount of Viognier. The red grapes are lightly crushed, partially de-stemmed and punched down by hand throughout fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wines are basket pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for aging. These red wines are aged for two years in barrel prior to being bottled.

The Viognier and Vermentino grapes are hand sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, floral, and fruity qualities of these amazing varietals. The juice is then fermented in older French oak barrels and a small percentage of stainless steel while preventing malo-lactic fermentation to promote bright, crisp acidity.

2016 Tierra Alta Vineyard Viognier

2016 Tierra Alta Vineyard Viognier

The Viognier grapes came from a very steep hillside block planted in shallow calcareous soils.  Located in the Ballard Canyon of Santa Barbara County with a cool marine influence and a long, cool growing season these grapes produced a meager 2.2 tons per acre crop with excellent concentration and freshness.  These grapes were hand harvested early in the morning, hand sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, floral and fruity quality of this amazing varietal.  The juice was fermented in 100% three year old French oak barrels while preventing malo-lactic fermentation with sulphur dioxide.  This Viognier was aged for six months sur lie in barrel and stirred monthly before being transferred to a 700L concrete egg for five months prior to bottling in July of 2017.  Beautiful aromas of freshly cut white flowers, honeydew melon, peach and nectarine jump from the glass while mouthwatering flavors of ripe, juicy peaches, nectarine and citrus lead way to bright, crisp acidity to refresh your palate.

2014 Grenache, Fox Family Vineyard

2014 Grenache, Fox Family Vineyard

The Grenache grapes are grown on a steep, South-facing, rocky hillside block of the Fox Family Vineyard in the hills of Los Olivos. This tiny vineyard is farmed by hand and the grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted, 85% destemmed and lightly crushed, leaving approximately 60% whole berries and 15% whole-cluster, into two 1 ton open top fermentors. The must was cold-soaked for five days, with the addition of dry-ice, prior to inoculation and punched down by hand one to three times per day until fermentation was complete. The must was basket pressed and settled before being racked to 450L and 500L French oak puncheons for aging. This wine was aged in barrel for an additional twenty-two months prior to being racked from barrel and bottled in late August of 2016. 91Pts. Robert Parker
