Winery
Carr Vineyards & Winery is a small handcrafted winery located in downtown Santa Barbara. The winery’s first vintage was in 1999. All of the wines produced at Carr Winery are sourced from Santa Barbara County grapes grown by Ryan Carr. Because the vineyards are operated under Ryan Carr’s supervision, the grapes are grown to his exact specifications making sure that only the finest grapes enter the winery. The focus of the winery lies with Pinot Noir grown in the Santa Rita Hills Appellation. This region has been recognized for producing some of the finest Pinot Noirs in the world. Although the focus is on Pinot Noir, the vast microclimates of Santa Barbara County allow the winery to produce several other great wines including Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Grenache and Syrah.
