Situated on the celebrated Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in the Santa Ynez Valley, Koehler Winery is located in one of California's most diverse and distinctive growing regions. The micro-climatic diversity on the 100 acre estate results in a superb quality of fruit, and Koehler's 30 year old vines are recognized as among the best in the Santa Ynez Valley and surrounding area.Take a look at our Los Olivos trip itinerary builder site to schedule your visit to Koehler Winery and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
When Kory Koehler acquired the property in 1997, all of the estate grapes were being sold to local wineries. Koehler soon recognized that some of the best wines in the valley were being produced with grapes harvested from their vineyards, and she resolved to launch her own winery and tasting room. From the start, Kory Koehler's vision was to create a world-class winery committed to making premium wines at affordable prices. Koehler began by turning the property over to one of the most skilled and knowledgeable vineyard managers in central California, Felipe Hernandez. Felipe painstakingly tends the sixty-seven acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Mourvedre and Viognier.

We were new to SB wine country and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful countryside. Dan, sales manager at Koehler, took his time to talk about the wines he served us and also about wine making in general. The weather was cloudy so we stayed inside, but the winery has great outdoor spaces. If you're in this region, I highly recommend stopping here.
The wine here was just what I like and fun, entertaining yet knowledgeable staff who know how to make you feel comfortable tasting great wines. Always nice to have some to enjoy once we get home when you find something you like. Space on patios and lots of beautiful picnic areas if you plan ahead and bring your own fruits, crackers, cheeses and just enjoy the peaceful setting at this Winery.
