Tyler is dedicated to producing wines of delicacy and balance, where structure and nuance are favored above all else. Justin Willett's focus is exclusively on exceptional vineyard sites throughout the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley within Santa Barbara County. Within these two appellations, the unique combination of marine-based soils, transverse ranges and valleys, and cool ocean influence make this a truly wonderful place for growing pinot noir and chardonnay.
In order to best convey the individuality of each site, Justin aims to be modern in his thinking and classic in his approach. He has made an effort to not only seek out vineyards of pedigree, but also to seek out vines with age. He now works with a number of the oldest vineyard blocks in the County and believes this is essential in his quest for both purity and intensity.
