About Tantara Winery

Since 1997, Dominion Tantara has been dedicated to producing the very finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Central Coast of California. Located in beautiful Santa Barbara County, our grapes are produced by top Central Coast growers such as: Bentrock, La Encantada, Lindsay’s, Zotovich, Dierberg and Tondre. In 2012, our two Los Olivos District Estate Vineyards, Ingeborg and Mateo’s, came online yielding Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Viognier and Carmenere respectively. Rick Hill, our Winemaker has been associated with Tantara Winery since the beginning and has been in charge of production since 2011. Due to his passion and commitment to producing “World Class” wines and sourcing only the highest quality fruit, our total winery production remains limited.

“There’s 2 or 3 producers like Tantara truly at cult status making a product head and shoulders more Pinot, more intelligent, more valuable in the long run"

Dominion Tantara Winery has two sister wineries across the world that take influence from the eclectic cultural upbringing of our owner. Haraszthy Vineyards in Hungary produces high quality wines year after year, which showcase Burgundy varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Our Palo Alto Winery in Mendoza, Argentina produces premium wines as well such as: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and red blends.
