Firestone was the first major estate winery established in the Santa Ynez Valley. Our 325 acres of historic vineyards lie approximately 26 miles from the cold Pacific Ocean creating a moderate, arid climate and extremely long growing season. In recent years we have developed proprietary viticulture protocols that take full advantage of the complex soils and many exposures on our estate. Our unique growing conditions and intense farming techniques yield wines that are concentrated, elegant and firmly structured. Firestone Vineyards is planted with Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah varietals.
