Lafond Winery and Vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, one of the first in the valley, has become a visible and successful winery, winning many medals for an array of wines.


Lafond is now in the midst of a significant expansion with additional vineyards and production facility in the Santa Ynez Valley close to the original winery.


Lafond, an Architect by training, evolved into a Winemaker. He went into wine production in 1962 because, evidence from commercial and private growers, indicated that Santa Barbara County had an ideal climate for grapes.


That sentiment has been justified by the over 100 wineries that are now in Santa Barbara County.



For years, Lafond Winery & Vineyards has been honored with the opportunity to produce and be recognized nationally for our award-winning Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Syrahs. We are thrilled to share a few of our most recent Award Winning favorites with you.
