A long time dream of Dean and Christi Heck's, Lavender Oak Vineyard was established in 2010 as a family run operation. This means all wines are made on our estate with special attention to organic methods; no pesticides, herbicides, or harmful chemicals. From harvest to bottling & labeling, each bottle is delicately and meticulously composed; a labor of LOV.
A close study of the soil and climate helped determine the ideal grape varietal for our land -a right bank Bordeaux style red - and a trip to Pomerol and Saint Emilion assured us that these wines would be our signature blend.
We have recently released our Estate Red Blend. This blend is 100% sourced from our vineyard and is also produced and bottled on site, at our winery.
We also offer pinot noir and chardonnay sourced from the historic Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, located down the road in the cool Western end of the Santa Ynez Valley (Santa Rita Hills AVA), and pinot noir sourced from Cebada vineyard as well estate grown chardonnays and pinots. These wines are available in limited release.
