Nestled under California pepper trees on a property that was once a dairy farm, Lincourt Vineyards retains the rural charm and simplicity of an earlier era. The winery was founded in 1996 by Bill Foley, who was inspired by the winegrowing potential of the Santa Ynez Valley and the Sta. Rita Hills in particular, which has since become one of California’s premier cool-climate viticultural regions. Sta. Rita Hills is also one of the state’s smaller AVAs, with 99 percent of its territory falling within the larger  Santa Ynez Valley.

Named Lincourt after Bill’s daughters, Lindsay and Courtney, the winery produces benchmark wines from grapes grown in two estate vineyards located in the cool Sta. Rita Hills as well as the warmer Santa Ynez Valley. This diversity makes Lincourt one of the rare wineries in the region capable of producing world-class bottlings from both Burgundian and Bordeaux varieties.

In the vineyard, sustainable farming practices and block harvesting are the standard, and in the winery, the lots are kept separate until final blending. Winemaker Lorna Kreutz, who began her winemaking career more than a decade ago in the Sta. Rita Hills, carefully handcrafts the boutique-style wines to reflect the nuances of their terroir. Her efforts do not go unnoticed. The wines are routinely lauded with 90-plus point scores from top publications including Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits.

The inviting tasting room is housed in an old farmhouse—an original 1926 Sears Craftsman kit home—overlooking the Alamo Pintado Vineyard. The property is an idyllic setting with picnic grounds, lawns, and gardens. There is even a separate veranda for private tastings and a barn that is used for special events. With ultra-premium wines and a relaxed rural charm, Lincourt Vineyards is an ideal spot to spend time with family, friends, and an exceptional bottle of wine.
