Located in the heart of Sta Rita Hills, Pence Vineyards & Winery is part of an impressive 200-acre polycultural vineyard estate and working ranch owned by Blair Pence that is producing outstanding wines from their organically farmed vines. From vine to glass, Pence’s philosophy is non-interventionist and site-driven, focusing on transparency and purity. With a five star winemaking team led by Sashi Moorman, the result is a range of elegantly crafted wines that nods to Burgundy in style but show pure Sta. Rita Hills character.

What Chiara loves...


100% Pinot Noir. This fragrant French-inspired Pinot Noir from Pence’s organically farmed vineyards in cool-climate Sta. Rita Hills shows bright red fruit aromas and flavors with underlying earthy notes.

Try it with: Seared duck breast with wild mushrooms and greens.
