We are a family owned winery nestled in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. Because we are small, we are able to be intimately involved in every step, carefully nurturing our unique wines from grape, to barrel, to bottle. Come sample our unique, award winning old-world, Bordeaux style wines at our recently opened tasting room in the heart of Los Olivos.

This was our first tasting room in Los Olivos, as we found a parking spot right outside. It is small and quaint, with great staff. Only tried white wines and bought a bottle, but they did not comp the tasting fee.

There are a lot of wineries within a block of each other but his one was very charming and beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly and open to chit chat. They have an amazing Rose "Panky" and their "Kemsley" 1550 Cab/Merlot 80/20 was one of best I tasted in the region.

Stop in the town of Los Olivos. They did filing here for the movies 'Sideways'. A very well rebuilt town to showcase several tasting rooms for several of the area vineyards. Stop in the J Ludlow Winery and say "Hi" to Erin and Phil. They will pour you some great wines and engage in great conversation. When you are done... More

We picked the winery because of a groupon purchased. It was excellent value. We had a rose and a white wine to take home. The price... More

Stopped by the J Ludlow tasting room while driving to the Lavender Fields. The owners were visiting from England, but we weren't introduced and didn't know who they were until they left. The wine selections were all quite good with consistent quality across the spectrum. The cabernet-chocolate pairing was a great choice. We ended up joining the wine club and... More
