Buttonwood Farm Winery
Our 39-acre vineyard sits on an ancient riverbank high above the Alamo Pintado creek bed in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley American Viticultural Appellation (AVA), which is distinct due to its transverse orientation. Warm air flows over the nearby San Rafael range to the east to meet cool Pacific breezes from the west, providing an ideal climate for our Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. Warm days and bright sunshine provide a perfect environment during the growing season, and the large diurnal shift to cold temperatures at night helps maintain the grapes’ natural acidity. Because of the unique soils, aquifer and climate of this area, a petition has been submitted to designate our local region as a sub-AVA of the Santa Ynez Valley which, if approved, will be named the Los Olivos District.
