Camp Four Vineyard is located on Baseline, on the eastern side of the valley. It was named after its older incarnation as a stagecoach stop (number 4) for weary ol’ west travelers. Just about every winery in Santa Barbara County buys grapes from this vineyard owned by the Parker family. They grow just about every variety here and the fruit quality is always solid. It is a warm site and is great for Rhone variety grapes like Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah. From the Fess Parker website:
The initial 250-acre block was completed and produced its first crop in harvest 2003. Located slightly Southwest from the winery in the Santa Ynez Valley, the warmer climates and loam soils of this site shows great potential for producing fully ripened, mature fruit.
