Gorgeous Drive in Buellton
Jan 2020
Our first time tasting at Lafond included stops at Sanford and Peake Ranch. All 3 are on the most gorgeous road and drive in the entire area. Start at Sanford, then work your way back to Lafond and then Peake Ranch.

Sandra greeted us at Lafond and poured spectacular wines. With each one, she showed us the fact sheet about the wine, and answered any additional questions we had. There are two appellations at Lafond and we definitely prefered the SRH - Santa Rita Hills appellation. We left with multiple bottles of the SRH Chardonnay, SRH Pinot Noir and SRH Syrah. Would definitely come back to Lafond.

Our Favorite Winery in the Greater Santa Ynez Valley Area - Santa Rita Hills AVA
Dec 2019
Take a very pretty drive west from Buellton and go wine tasting at Lafond Winery. We love their Pinot Noir, Sarah, and Chardonnay. They have a great little shop in their tasting room. Their wines prices are very reasonable for the area. Also for a picnic, they have about 10 tables spreadout over a lawn area overlooking their vineyard and hills far off the country road. The people working in the tasting room, are all friendly and knowledgeable.

Loved their Chardonnay and Pinot
Jul 2019 • Couples
Even though we visited on a Monday, they were busy, maybe because only one person was working behind the bar at the time we were there. We had to wait a little while but time went quickly as we browsed the unique gifts. The gal working the tasting room was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Brought home a case of chardonnay. They do charge for shipping.

Great history
May 2019 • Business
To be fair, I made an appointment for our wine group at the end of the day but I was under the impression that it was going to be a 30-minute seated tasting. I might have misunderstood. The wines are nice but lack buying power. We were shown into the barrel room but then left to our own devices since there was just one person working the tasting room with the presence of other guests. Next time I will not schedule a tasting so late in the day.

A little out of the way but a great spot to enjoy wine and a picnic. Wines were good and the people friendly and informative.

Excellent winery off the beaten track
Jun 2018 • Couples
This winery is way off the beaten track but worth the drive into Santa Rita Hills. I would have never found this winery if a foodie friend hadn’t recommended it to me. I’m not really a fan of Santa Ynez pinot noirs but LaFond has a good one. I find many of the pinots in SYV to be thin and tasteless. The 2013 Martin Ray Clone pinot noir was excellent. I also enjoyed their Chardonnay. Diane, who poured our tasting, was very knowledgeable and did a great job.

First came upon Lafond back in 2006, I believe. Love, LOVE their Pinot Noir wine. The Syrah and red blends are also a favorite of mine. I like the flexibility of their SRH Wine Club membership. The discount is great because we like to buy large format bottles as well as the beautiful goods in the tasting room shop. Kathy and Mirella are usually available at the Buellton tasting room to pour. Liz at the Lafond Tasting Room in the Funk Zone/Santa Barbara. Love to stop at either one on our way between Santa Cruz and Ojai.

Peaceful Tasting Room
Nov 2017 • Couples
La Fond is a bit isolated from other wineries. It's about half way in between Mosby and Sanford. It's definitely worth a stop for its quaint tasting room and beautiful, peaceful grounds. Wines are decent, which I think makes La Fond definitely worthy of a stop while in wine country.

Super!!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
Excellent! Have not been here in a few years....since 2005. Just as great!

The tasting room is very nice. High end atmosphere, but not pretentious.

The two ladies who helped us were soooo nice! They were great in explaining their wines.

We loved their Chardonnay and Syrah! Took home a few bottles!
