About our winery:

Bill Wathen and Dick Doré (also known as the “Foxen Boys”) have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded FOXEN at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time, their dedication has remained the same—the creation of very small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a “minimalist” approach to winemaking.If you don\'t know Foxen you don\'t know Dick...or Bill.

Three things to love about us:

Family Owned, Sustainable, Small Production

What makes us unique:

We have two tasting rooms less than a 1/4 mile away from each other on Foxen Canyon Road. The original "Shack" features our Bordeaux and Cal-Ital varietals, while the new solar-powered tasting room up the road features our Burgundy and Rhone varietals. We encourage you to check out both tasting rooms to get the full Foxen experience. Cheers!

Our awards:

Named Food & Wine Magazine\'s "Top 75 Wineries to Visit in California"
