Koehler Winery, Los Olivos

4.6
#8 of 17 in Things to do in Los Olivos
Situated on the celebrated Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in the Santa Ynez Valley, Koehler Winery is located in one of California's most diverse and distinctive growing regions. The micro-climatic diversity on the 100 acre estate results in a superb quality of fruit, and Koehler's 30 year old vines are recognized as among the best in the Santa Ynez Valley and surrounding area.

When Kory Koehler acquired the property in 1997, all of the estate grapes were being sold to local wineries. Koehler soon recognized that some of the best wines in the valley were being produced with grapes harvested from their vineyards, and she resolved to launch her own winery and tasting room. From the start, Kory Koehler's vision was to create a world-class winery committed to making premium wines at affordable prices. Koehler began by turning the property over to one of the most skilled and knowledgeable vineyard managers in central California, Felipe Hernandez. Felipe painstakingly tends the sixty-seven acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Mourvedre and Viognier.

  • Driving into the Koehler winery is impressive with 47 yrs old grapes at each side of the narrow road. In late January they still had red and yellow leaves on them and we got some stunning pictures. Ta...  more »

  • The wine here was just what I like and fun, entertaining yet knowledgeable staff who know how to make you feel comfortable tasting great wines. Always nice to have some to enjoy once we get home when you find something you like. Space on patios and lots of beautiful picnic areas if you plan ahead and bring your own fruits, crackers, cheeses and just enjoy the peaceful setting at this Winery.
  • Great hosts, great wine, great setting and emus! Enjoying
  • As far as the wines, I’ve tried them twice and haven’t really liked any of them. So there’s that. However, as far as the service goes, both times I’ve been here the people have been super friendly, informative and willing to talk. While I can’t necessarily recommend the wines, I can certainly recommend the people. Go give them a try for yourself and if you also don’t like the wines, you’ll at least meet some new, awesome folks.
  • A special place in a great setting. Buy a bottle of their good wine and bring along a lunch to enjoy after your tasting. Relaxing atmosphere with good wines, a good staff of helpful people, just a fun place to be!
  • I have been back and forth past this winery for years. Finally, I made the time to stop by during my visit yesterday. I have been missing out!
