About Longoria Wines
Longoria Wines is an artisanal family winery established in 1982 by Rick and Diana Longoria. Rick has a long history of winemaking in the Santa Barbara County beginning in 1976. Over the years, Rick has experimented with many different vineyard sources and grape varietals. Along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Bordeaux varietals, Rick has added Albariño and Tempranillo to his portfolio. Rick's pursuit of excellence requires the production of his wines to remain small, even after 35 years in business. Longoria wines are handcrafted in very small quantities ranging from 50 to 700 cases. Total annual production currently averages 3,000 cases.
Rick's style is one where the character of the grape varietal and the uniqueness of each vineyard are allowed to be dominant elements in his wines. Classically balanced, elegant, clean and varietally correct are the hallmarks of Longoria wines.
