The Hilt

Located in the Santa Rita Hills of Santa Barbara, the home of The Hilt is the large patchwork of aspects and microclimates of Rancho Salsipuedes. The coolest wine growing area in the state of California benefits from winds whipping through the Sta.

Rita Hills AVA and the most prized vineyards of The Hilt maximise the cool maritime climate, facing north to allow slow ripening throughout the growing season retaining acidity in the grapes. The vineyards are all planted on poor soils that force vines to dig deep for nutrients and naturally limiting the vigour of the vines. Low yields of concentrated grapes translate to complex wines that winemaker Matt Dees strives to showcase the elegance and precision that makes The Hilt wines stand out within the AVA. Founded in 2008, The Hilt is now owned by Stan Kroenke, owner of Screaming Eagle and Bonneau du Martray to go with his ownership of Arsenal FC.
