Carhartt Vineyard, Los Olivos

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web
The ten-acre Carhartt Vineyard sits high on a mesa with maximum sun exposure and a soil structure that lends itself to the production of outstanding fruit. Planted in 1996, the vineyard is situated in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley appellation (AVA), blessed with a climate that is particularly suited to Rhône and Bordeaux varietals. The cool mornings quickly move into hot, sunny days that remain warm until sundown. The growing season is long, often stretching into late November, which allows the grapes to fully ripen and achieve their optimal balance of sugars, acids and spicy flavors.
Carhartt Vineyard is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Los Olivos Edition.

  • In Los Olivos, California there is a Main Street where most of the tasting rooms are. This is the first one on the street. Very unassuming looking from the outside, but very cozy and pleasant when you...  read more »
  • This was a true find! I had done my homework in advance and read several reviews that this was a tasting room to visit. We hit it after two others first. This place really stood out. First we were gre...  read more »

  • My wife and I took a trip down Highway 1 recently and on our 'relax' day we hit a spa, some great restaurants, and a few tasting rooms. Carhartt Vineyard happened to be one of them and it has an amazingly small are in the front (seats 3 with room for a couple to stand) and a nice looking back area. This was our final taste before heading into Santa Barbara for dinner and to the hotel we were staying at and really was a lot of fun. The host was friendly, knowledgeable, and did a good job at juggling her time between us and the other couple that was in the room. I kind of wish we had a chance to do our tasting in the patio area though it was full when we came through. The sampling was for six wines though I do believe we had closer to 9 fills (couldn't tell you if this was standard practice or if they just had a friendly staff on hand.) All of them tasted good and we ended up grabbing a bottle of the Chase the Blues Away Rose to go. Fun little stop!
  • We visit the Santa Ynez Valley monthly for our wine tasting day trip. We rotate memberships, dropping one and adding another frequently. But, Carhartt is one of our permanent lineup. Great wine, great staff, and such a fun back patio turns into the after party of Los Olivos, as they stay open a couple hours after every other tasting room closes, and the blast the classic rock.
  • Simply put.... just a really cool, relaxed, fun time! The back patio is small, but a lot of fun! The service was fantastic btw... fun and felt genuinely welcomed!
  • This small tasting room at the beginning of town has amazing wines and a awesome backyard seating area. Perfect for a sunny day.
  • Wonderful family owned winery with friendly people all around makes you feel like a big house party and good times. Perfect example of a server making or breaking your experience with a winery and its wines. I loved everything about this tasting. The setting is not overwhelming & the patio is welcoming. Dylan was absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable about every wine and pairing suggestions. Even though I loved the wine, Dylan’s awesome service is what got me to join the wine club.
