FOLEY ESTATES VINEYARD & WINERY Along Highway 246 between Lompoc and Buellton, a stunning scene leaps into view from the roadside: a series of fifty-nine vineyard blocks blanketing steep, south-facing hillsides and the gently sloping valley below. The setting is Rancho Santa Rosa, home of Foley Estates Vineyard & Winery and part of the original 15,000-acre parcel granted by the Mexican government to former Presidio officer Francisco Cota’s ten children in 1845. Vintner Bill Foley, owner of Lincourt Vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley since 1994, had successfully produced varietals suited for the region’s warm climate. However, he hoped to establish a separate vineyard estate to focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and other varietals that would thrive in the limestone soils and cooling maritime effects of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation.
