Larner Vineyard is a small, family-run vineyard located at the heart of the best grape-growing region in Santa Barbara: Ballard Canyon in the Santa Ynez Valley. Founded by Stevan and Christine Larner in 1997, the property is managed today by a second generation of Larners. Michael and his wife Christina Larner live onsite and Monica Larner returns regularly from her adopted home, Italy. The 134-acre ranch is planted to 34 acres of vine, including Rhône varieties Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Viognier. As a small tribute to Italy, the Larners also have one block of Malvasia Bianca.
