Desde fines del siglo pasado y hasta mediados de la década de 1970, la viña se desarrolló bajo la propiedad de la familia García Huidobro, encabezada por don Vicente García Huidobro, yerno de don Domingo Fernández Concha, quién continuó con el legado e ideales de su fundador. En 1980, el grupo Claro y la empresa Owens Illinois, principal productora de envases de vidrio del mundo, adquirieron la propiedad de Viña Santa Rita, consistente en sus marcas, la planta de Alto Jahuel y 50 hectáreas de Read more »

  • Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Medalla Real Gran Reserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with lunch at Marcello's Chophouse the other day. Beautiful little number, strong and dense Cabernet, but loads of herb and spice. Long lingering and rich finish of stewed fruit and spice...underpriced for this quality. Read More

  • After rehearsal tonight I opened a Brewer-Clifton Mt. Carmel Pinot Noir 2010 Santa Rita Hills vineyard and although I think it is a bit young it is very enjoyable. Brewer -Clifton is located in Lompoc, Ca. In what we call the Wine Ghetto. This is a very fruit forward mid range tannin Pinot that indicate to me that this could lay down five years.... Read More

  • Dave, Chardonnay has been the most impressive grape coming out of Santa Barbara (Sta. Rita Hills to be more precise), then Syrah from Santa Ynez. Pinot is somewhere down the list...the only couple I've liked have been from Whitcrafts Aubaine vineyard (unfortunately you need to be a club member to get it), and a wine from the Fiddlestix vineyard,...

We've now been to quite a few vineyards and among our favorites are Zaca Mesa, Koehler and Bridlewood.  But 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 ro... Read More
