Larner Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley

The Larner Vineyard is rightly famous for the quality of the  Rhone varietals grown there, but founders Stevan and Christine Larner also planted an Italy-like boot-shaped block with Malvasia Bianca especially for Palmina. This is now farmed by a second generation of Larners. Michael and his wife Christina Larner live on site and Monica Larner returns regularly from her adopted home in Italy.
