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, "Sisquoc" meant "gathering place". Rancho Sisquoc is again a gathering place, this time for wine lovers.
Today, as you drive the road that snakes along the edge of the valley floor to the ranch headquarters and tasting room, you leave the rush of the late twentieth century behind. The farmhouse and barn date from the early 1900s, and artifacts of an earlier age lend the ranch a feeling of when the pace was slower and unrushed.
