Black Sheep Finds Holus Bolus Syrah Sta. Rita Hills
Our Holus Bolus wines are produced from grapes that are purchased from vineyard partners in Santa Barbara County.
John Sebastiano Vineyard
Location: A south facing slope at 1,000 feet elevation at the easter edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation.
Vines: Planted in 2005, we have two blocks at Sebastiano. Clone 383 which goes in the “regular” white label Holus Bolus, while the the Alban clone that is planted without any rootstock goes into the Franc de Pied bottling.
Soil: A mix of clay loam with bit of limestone scattered throughout. Not an overly vigorous site when farmed properly.
