The Paring was born in 2006 out of a desire to explore, experiment and excite—without rules.
Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don't fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed JONATA and The Hilt wines—The Paring is a cut of each estate. The Paring puts pedigree first, and then lets imagination take over.
The grapes are sourced primarily from three Santa Barbara regions on the vanguard: Santa Ynez Valley, Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley.
The Paring Red and Paring Sauvignon Blanc wines explore different blending opportunities where experimentations with site and varieties are key; select vineyards are defined and farmed to our rigorous standards, wine lots are blended and aged together to reach balance and enjoyment.
The Paring Pinot Noir, Rosé of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah wines explore different styles and vineyards: from the precise and complex Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley to the deliciously rich and versatile Syrah from Santa Ynez Valley.
The Paring wines are for pleasure and meant to be at home anywhere, pairing beautifully with casual BBQs as well as feasts that pull out all the stops. They make every effort to strike a balance between volume, and texture, both direct results of the beautiful Santa Barbara sun and cool oceanic winds.
