These stunners are made by Paul Lato, whose Santa Barbara winery has been one of our favorites for a few years now. The quality level here is astounding and we’re excited to work with these wines in years to come.
“This is a new estate focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County. The wines are made by Paul Lato, and as I think the reviews show, these are well worth tracking down.”

2014 Peake Ranch Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard
On Sale $36.99
A rock star in the vintage, Peake Ranch’s 2014 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard (100% Chardonnay aged 14 months in 70% new French oak) gives up a fabulous array of lemon curd, charcoal, citrus blossom and brioche. Rich, gorgeously textured, balanced and just impeccably put together, with the oak covered by fruit, drink this killer white over the coming 4-5 years.

2014 Peake Ranch Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard
On Sale $55.99
Another stunning effort from winemaker Paul Lato, the 2014 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard (raised in 60% new oak) offers another level of purity and focus over the straight Sta. Rita Hills release. Chambolle-Musigny like with its elegant, ultra-pure and nuanced bouquet of framboise, flowers and spice, this beauty has no hard edges, perfect balance and a seamless, silky texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s beautiful already, yet should keep for 7-8 years, possibly longer.
