What We Do

Carhartt Vineyard & Winery

Making Wine from Ground to Glass, by Hand and Heart in Rancho Santa Ynez for Three Generations. We are a family owned and operated vineyard and winery.

Sun, water, soil, climate – all integrated parts – and all weather driven. Thus, the weather vanes featured on each label, are also found atop each of the structures located on the ranch and winery property. The rich history, the family, the connection remain, and all reflect the Carhartt’s passion and dedication to quality wine.

The Carhartt Philosophy

Our Story

Family owned and operated since the early 1950s. Located on the historic Rancho Santa Ynez. Mike Carhartt grew up raising cattle and horses and farming the ranch land. Years later he and his wife Brooke planted a vineyard on the fertile land. Today alongside their son Chase the family continues to grow the grapes and make the wine on the same ranch. The land has been very kind to them.

Family History

I In the 1940’s and ˜50’s, the ranch used to be the headquarters for a 2500-acre dairy/swine operation. When Chase Carhartt’s grandfather took the property over, that part of the facility phased out, but the general ranching and cowboy culture continued. “I was a full-blown cowboy,” Mike says, seeming to marvel at the memory.
