Nestled in picturesque Ballard Canyon in the center of Santa Ynez Valley, amidst oak-studded rolling hills lies Rusack Vineyards, a boutique vineyard and winery dedicated to growing top-quality grapes and producing outstanding handcrafted wines.
Rusack Vineyards was established in 1995 by Geoff Rusack and Alison Wrigley Rusack with a commitment to creating world-class wines. The estate vineyards were originally planted about 30 years ago, but in early 2003 they were replanted using the latest in vineyard technologies and varietals best-suited to the relevant microclimates. As well as the estate vineyards, Rusack Vineyards continues to source classic varietal grapes from the some of the best vineyards in the area including neighbor vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley appellation and Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Santa Rita Hills and the Santa Maria Valley.
