Follow Foxen Canyon Road deep into the Santa Maria wine country and you will find Foxen Vineyard and Winery. Their tasting rooms are situated on 2,000 acres of beautiful California ranch land where visitors have the opportunity to visit the original location, lovingly known as “The Shack”, to see where it all began, and experience the rustic side of Foxen. Just up the road lies the new Solar-Powered winery and Foxen tasting room. Visiting both locations tells the full story and gives you the essence of what makes us uniquely and distinctively Foxen.
