By joining our Wine Club, you receive access to wines that are not available in the marketplace. Over the years, we have been honored by the loyalty and dedication many wine lovers have shown our wines. Our customers often share touching stories with us about a special occasion at which they poured one of our wines, or how they simply enjoy a glass of our wine after a long work week.
Estate wineries are what most people picture when they imagine going wine tasting: a pastoral setting with Instagram-able views of vineyards, high-end wines, and outdoor seating. The Santa Ynez Valley is filled with beautiful estate wineries that fulfill all the expectations of what a day of wine tasting should be. The wine tasting experience at an estate winery can end up being more transformative and experiential. Standing in the actual place where the grapes are grown and produced helps connect people to the land, the history, and the energy of the place. It rounds out the experience in a way that a non- estate tasting rooms can’t provide.
Dan, there’s obviously been big changes in the world over the past month, what’s changed at Gainey?
Some parts of the business have changed dramatically, and some parts really haven’t changed much at all. The greatest changes, of course, have been to our tasting room operations. Our Evan’s Ranch tasting room in Los Olivos has been closed entirely and our Gainey tasting room is only open now for curbside pickups.
