Welcome to Drinking SRH

I’m no expert. But I love wine. And I especially love the wines of Sta. Rita Hills.

This blog won’t be the place to go for the best insight into winemaking or wine tasting. It’ll just be a report on what I like.

I’ve explored almost every square inch in this AVA that you’re permitted to go: by jogging, cycling, riding, walking. I’ve photographed nearly every vineyard I can see.

Still, I’m not anything like an expert. I just love this region from Buellton to Lompoc and from the La Purisma Hills to the Santa Rosa Hills—and the pinots and chardonnays it produces.

In this blog, I’ll be drinking through these wines. An average guy’s thoughts about the wine and the terroir.
