Larner Vineyard is a small, family-run vineyard located at the heart of the best grape-growing region in Santa Barbara: Ballard Canyon in the Santa Ynez Valley. Founded by Stevan and Christine Larner in 1997, the property is managed today by a second generation of Larners. Michael and his wife Christina Larner live onsite and Monica Larner returns regularly from her adopted home, Italy. The 134-acre ranch is planted to 34 acres of vine, including Rhône varieties Syrah, Grenache. Mourvedre and Viognier. As a small tribute to Italy, the Larners also have one block of Malvasia Bianca.

Garageiste Festival - Urban Exposure
The Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles
2:00 - 6:00pm
This event is dedicated to showcasing the wines of over 60 high-quality, limited-production, commercial winemakers who are making under 1500 cases per year from all over California. We are thrilled to be holding this year’s Festival in the historic, art deco Wiltern Theater in mid-city Los Angeles. Our mission is to support the small guys and girls who don’t have big marketing budgets or the time to get out there and sell their wine. These small-lot wines can be very hard to find. Over 60% of these winemakers don’t have a tasting room, so this is a singular chance to discover the next great winemakers early…and impress your friends with your newfound knowledge! Come on down and meet these artisans in person and taste their passion. We know you’ll find plenty of new wines to love.
