Riverbench Vineyard was established in 1973, when its first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were planted on the property. For years since then, some of the most renowned wineries in Santa Barbara County have purchased our fruit for their own wines. Over time Riverbench has become a prominent name for high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Santa Maria Valley. Our Santa Barbara Tasting location is a great place to enjoy wine by the glass, by the bottle, or in a tasting flight. Just steps from the beach, the Funk Zone is the place to be in Santa Barbara!
