Sunstone winery a 52-acre ranch in Santa Ynez ranch and is one of the first organic vineyards in Santa Barbara. It is a charming location, and it’s not hard to see why Australian actress Trilby Glover and Glee co-creator Ian Brennan decided on Sunstone winery, for their wedding venue. The stunning vistas from the Santa Barbra wedding venue overlook the Santa Ynez River, splendid mountains and sunstone vineyards.
Sunstone Winery is positioned approximately thirty minutes north of Santa Barbra. The villa is exquisite throughout, with handmade roof tiles, French limestone, and a fireplace from Bordeaux, France. The villa has pine beams, that were in fact from Queen victoria’s lavender factory. It has an old prison cell door that was from Napoleon’s era, and also a kitchen sink that is over a 1000 years old. So the villa at Sunstone winery is like a walk back in time and it’s easy to see why Trilby and Ian chose it for their Santa Barbra wedding venue. Sunstone’s elegant 28-acre organic, bio-sustainable vineyard was seeded in 1990 by the Rice Family to Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Viognier. It is understood that Sunstone winery is earliest, organically maintained vineyard in Santa Barbara.
