In 1973 Riverbench Vineyard was established in the Santa Maria Valley, when its first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were planted on the property. Since then, they have built a reputation for outstanding Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and sparkling wines by enhancing the natural qualities through fermentation and aging in French oak barrels. Take in the vineyard views in a restored 1920s craftsman-style house on the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail. There is also event space available for meetings, conventions, weddings, and receptions.
