He also notes "One of the more brilliant portfolios of Rhone Rangers I tasted on my tour of the Central Coast was that of Blair Fox...back-to-back vintages of great wines powerful, rich, concentrated, age worthy and impressively made."

“This is a beautiful set of wines from Blair Fox, whose resume includes stints as head winemaker at Fess Parker and significant travels throughout the Rhone Valley. Fox planted his own vineyards in 2004 in Los Olivos and practices organic farming. It will be fascinating to see where these wines go from here. One thing is for sure, this lineup delivers considerable quality for the money.” Issue #196
Food and Wine Magazine, did a wonderful article on the Santa Barbara area in which our winery was included saying "...it is hard to quarrel with the quality of wines created by the winemaker Blair Fox under the Blair Fox Cellars label, one of the most exciting to debut in recent years. Fox makes big, rich, single-vineyard Syrahs, including one from the iron-rich soils of the noted Paradise Road vineyard, also the source for his zingy, peachy Viognier."
It is a must to taste these handcrafted, truly exceptional, ultra-boutique wines!
