Cottonwood Canyon Winery


Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard & Winery is a premium boutique winery specializing in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Founded in 1988 by the Beko family, Cottonwood Canyon joins traditional Burgundian style winemaking practices with American ingenuity to produce age­worthy and memorable wines! We are surrounded by the spectacular beauty of the San Rafael Mountains in the cool climate of the Santa Maria Valley. We are approximately ten minutes east of Santa Maria, CA and at the northern edge of the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in Santa Barbara County wine country. The now 78-acre estate had 46 acres of planted Chardonnay and was 15 years old at the time of purchase. To our good fortune, the estate was one of the original California vineyards planted in a north­south direction strategically allowing for maximum sun exposure and helping to reduce vine damage from the wind. The proximity of our location is just 19 miles away from the Pacific Ocean, generating a heavy marine influence and a cool Pacific Ocean breeze both proving to be highly influential on our fruit.
