2840 Montecielo Dr
Santa Ynez, CA 93460


We are Dr. Bob Baehner and Vickie Fournier Baehner. We live on a 16 acre hill overlooking the scenic Eastern Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County. We grow winegrapes on these sloping hills and hillsides that are surrounded by oak trees, native chaparral and purple sage. We believe this magical setting creates the environment for our winegrapes to express the essence of this place.

We were impressed by the wide spectrum of weather conditions our vineyards were exposed to throughout the four seasons. We spent many days and nights strolling among the vines feeling the heat of the afternoon sun, experiencing the winds, gazing at the stars and seeing moon glow, early morning fogs and rainbows gift wrap our vineyards. We named each vineyard for these encounters with nature - Sunshine, Rainbow, Moonglow, Misty and Northstar Vineyards. We commissioned our artist friend Laura Schy to paint a canvas symbolizing our newly named vineyards. She created it and we loved it.
