Our winery is called Fiddlehead, so why not have a little fun and call our vineyard Fiddlestix?!
Fiddlestix is the quintessential Pinot noir dream vineyard, located at the western end of the transverse-oriented Santa Ynez Valley, AVA. In 1996, Kathy took a leap of faith and purchased what was a 133 acre “flower farm” (Sta. Rita Hills AVA granted in 2001). We can‘t help but be proud of her intuitive investment.
Located in a narrow slot of the cool climate Santa Rita Hills AVA (located mostly within the SYV AVA), at mile marker 7.28 on Santa Rosa Road, Fiddlestix is where perfect Pinot noir elements of soil and Region I climate pull together.
