Established in 2005 Demetria Estate is a family owned winery. Our goal is to produce wines of distinction and character rivaling those of the world’s greatest estates. Demetria Estate includes two separate portfolios of wines, both capturing the singularity of the vineyards and the region from which they originated. The offerings comprise of varietally honest manifestations of pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot gris and pinot blanc farmed sustainably in the Santa Rita Hills appellation of Santa Barbara County. We also farm biodynamically our Rhone-based wines of consequence and environmental merit. This estate vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley includes syrah, mourvedre, grenache and viognier, roussanne, marsanne and grenache blanc. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Thanks Larry, I've seen you on Berserkers (where I lurk more than I post), ... was our 1 pm appointment at Demetria. I think the drive up to estate might have taken as long as the drive to the Canyon. We sampled an excellent viognier and then three rhone blends followed by one of the better syrahs of the trip so far. We really enjoyed the atmo... Read More

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Welcome to the Forum, PHound and thanks for the tip on Demetria--another one that I've never heard of.From where in S. Calif. are you starting?  Are you only spending a day in the wine country?  Unless you come back and advise me otherwise I'll assume that this is a one-day trip, and, so, you are somewhat limited in the geography you can check o...

  • I go to S. Calif every winter to visit family and drive up to Santa Barbara for ... the stand-out vineyard was Demetria. You need a reservation to visit, but it's worth it. It's at the end of a long winding private road far from anything else and the setting is fantastic. Most importantly, the wines, especially the Pinot Noirs were fabulous, an... Read More

  • Being a fan of Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Cabernet and Merlot from the left and right banks of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from, you guessed it, the Rhone valley, I've had trouble finding wines that I really like from California. Sure there have been a number of very good, and occasionally great, bottles, but my experience has been about a 20% a... Read More

  • I recently went to Demetria on a trip to Los Olivos for a friend's birthday party. Out of the 7 wineries we went to this was the most picturesque yet by far the worst. We had 10 people in our group and an appointment. However, upon arrival there was nowhere for us to taste or sit. So their solution was to bring us into a room give us a quick rou...

  • I asked in another thread about recommendation for the Okanagan Valley area of British Columbia, but now I'm asking for up-to-date stories about an area closer to (my) home. I have a family gathering in The Ojai/Santa Barbara area next month, and was wondering who has recommendations about particularly good wines and winery visits in that area t... Read More
