    Hands On Honest Winemaking

    In 2012 Will Henry and Lane Tanner ran into each other in the Santa Maria Valley, and realized that they shared a common vision: to make wines from the best cool-climate vineyards in Santa Barbara County, and to follow a regimen consistent with California’s early days of hands-on, honest winemaking in the Santa Ynez Valley.

    Memorable Wines

    The duo asserts that the most balanced (and thus memorable) wines are made from fruit that is picked relatively early on the harvest calendar, the end result being a wine that is livelier on the palate, deeper in complexity, lower in alcohol, and more worthy of cellaring.

    Happy Canyon Vineyard is nestled into the undulating hills of the beautiful Piocho Ranch. The Barracks have taken great pride over the years in being stewards of the land and along with their wine maker Doug Margerum, have created something that is unique to the beauty and richness of the place. Piocho, is a Chumash Indian word meaning “where the two rivers meet and go to heaven”. The ranch is also home to the “Piocho” polo team.

    There are the top wines called Barrack Brand, Barrack Blanc and Barrack Ten–Goal and two companion wines; PIOCHO is the champion wine made mostly from Cabernet Franc. There is also a nouveau styled Bordeaux blend released each Easter (perfect with Spring Lamb) called CHUKKER.

    Our wines are available on our website and in our new tasting room, located in Santa Barbara at 30 El Paseo, open 12pm – 6pm daily. For a truly special experience, we offer private, by appointment tastings at our ranch and vineyard.

    Bill Wathen and Dick Doré (the Foxen Boys) have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in Northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time their dedication has remained the same: the creation of small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a straightforward and minimalist approach to winemaking.

    The winery is named in memory of William Benjamin Foxen, and English sea captain and Dick’s great-great grandfather. Benjamin Foxen came to Santa Barbara in the early 1800’s and purchased the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in 1837 with a Mexican Land Grant that totaled nearly 9000 acres, that comprised most of what is now known as Foxen Canyon. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive anchor as his ranch cattle brand, which became the trademark of the Foxen Vineyard & Winery. We are proud that we have made our home on the now 2000-acre Rancho Tinaquaic, which remains in family hands.

    After searching for years in the Central Coast for the perfect spot, we discovered Refugio Ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley in 2005. The land was untouched, having been a cattle grazing ranch for the past few hundred years. We immediately brought the PhD “dirt docs” down from Napa who, after careful analysis of the soils and microclimate, indicated Refugio Ranch was perfectly suited for growing Rhone varietals and Sauvignon Blanc. This resulted in our planting 15 blocks on 26 of the most prime acres of our 415-acre ranch.

    The winery started in 2004 with a patch of raw earth, a bucket of grapevines and plenty of sweat from family and friends who joined to embark on the extraordinary. From this work emerged a commitment to produce authentic, handcrafted wines emblematic of the vintage, earth and effort.
