California's Central Coast, from Santa Barbara to Monterey is blessed with ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. A long growing season with abundant sunshine for sugar production but enough cool nights and foggy mornings for color extraction and complex flavors, gives us the opportunity to work with some of the best fruit in the world. It is our goal that this bounty of nature be transformed into great wine.
Since 1997, Tantara has been dedicated to producing the very finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Located on the beautiful Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Barbara County, our wines are vineyard designated from Central Coast growers such as Bien Nacido, Talley, Pisoni, Garys, Laetitia and Dierberg.
