Sitting in the Santa Ynez Valley in the heart of Santa Barbara’s wine country, the Sunstone Winery not only offers tastings sessions featuring some of Southern California’s finest wines, it also boasts one of the most atmospheric villas in the region. Many visitors to Sunstone come from Santa Barbara to enjoy the ambiance-rich tasting room and to explore the vineyards and visit the unique stone barrel caves on the scenic hillside. The Villa at Sunstone holds a special allure. Built using limestone imported from France and wood beams from a 19th century lavender plantation owned by Queen Victoria, this Tuscan-style mansion overlooks the most-scenic section of the Santa Ynez Valley. The villa features five master suites, each with en suite bath, unique decor and fine linens. This is a spacious villa, stretching for over 8,500 square feet. It has eight fireplaces, numerous balconies and terraces and expansive patios. An outdoor courtyard, with a fireplace at its center, brings a great deal of classic style to Sunstone. Private events can be held in the courtyard. In total, the villa can accommodate 10 people, though the suites can also be rented out individually.

Sunstone Estate also offers exclusive wedding and special event hosting packages. The estate is experienced at hosting weddings, corporate functions, wine pairings, formal dinners, reunions and luncheons.

The patios and balconies, from which guests can see the beautiful vineyard-covered Santa Ynez Valley and the mountains.
