BIEN NACIDO ESTATE’S wines—produced from two iconic estate vineyards—reflect their deep California roots and elegant winemaking style.

In 1969, the Miller family, a fifth-generation California farming family, purchased Spanish land grant parcels in the Santa Maria Valley and planted Bien Nacido Vineyards. Since that time, Bien Nacido Vineyards has earned the respect of winemakers, critics, and wine consumers. It is a remarkable place that produces premium fruit.

In the late 1990’s, the family planted the nearby Solomon Hills Vineyard, named for Salomon Pico, a bandit who frequented the area and inspired the Lone Ranger series.

Both vineyards are located within the Santa Maria Valley AVA, one of the coolest winegrowing climates in California. With the Pacific coastline only miles away, a constant maritime influence results in wines with precise acidity, vibrant fruit, and an inherent elegance. Their exquisite flavors capture a sense of place.

Guests are welcome to visit the estate’s tasting room in the heart of Los Olivos to sample and enjoy a three-tiered tasting experience of small-production wines from different areas of Bien Nacido Vineyards: cool-climate Syrah from Block X, Old Vine Pinot Noir, and Pinot Noir from the vineyard’s highest point, called “The Captain”.
