Au Bon Climat

Au Bon Climat Winery

Founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat (which means “a well-exposed vineyard”) produces internationally-recognized Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc wine from grapes grown in California’s Santa Barbara County.   The Au Bon Climat winery is located on the world-famous Bien Nacido Vineyard, and is owned by winemaker Jim Clendenen. 

Clendenen Family Vineyards

Jim also established the Clendenen Family Vineyards brand. Under this brand, Jim makes small, artisan lots of distinctive wines. By using smaller lots, he focuses on a wider spectrum of varieties, which are allowed to remain in their barrels until they are deemed complete. One such wine under Clendenen Family Vineyards is Jim’s Nebbiolo that remains in its barrel for five years. Each wine is nuanced, long lived, food-friendly and contains firm acidities and moderate alcohol. Come experience these distinctive, adult style wines from Jim Clendenen

We welcome our friends from the “other south.”
