WELCOME to the only place that you can buy ARTISTE! We don't sell to stores. Thank you for supporting small, family businesses in Santa Barbara Wine Country.
We got a bit carried away with this blend of 29% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 29% Mourvèdre, and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, thinking it would need an extra kick to get us through the coolness of the desert night.

When riding out on the range, the Aussies and American cowboys know what drinks best, something powerful, like this 50% Syrah / 50% Cabernet Suavignon blend, which will knock your spurs off.
10% Cabernet Franc
A "vignoble" is what the French refer to as a vineyard or wine growing area. This Vignoble was perfectly captured by Christina LoCascio with wine on watercolor paper, and is an experimental blend of 45% Nebbiolo, 45% Barbera and 10% Cabernet Franc.
This is your white wine for Pacific rim cuisine. Mouthwatering citrus dominates the palate. It's tropical pineapple and melon characteristics are followed by sweet French oak vanillin.
This is NOT your typical rosé! It's BLUSH, which is a blend of white and red wine. It's designed for white AND red wine lovers. It has the juicy and vibrant acidity of a white wine, but a long finish of a red wine. This has been both a staff AND member favorite in the tasting room this fall. Try it yourself and let us know ... What's your impression?
A 100% Rosé of Syrah, Monet would have loved this wine! This gorgeous rosé of Syrah displays bright strawberry and juicy watermelon characteristics with a hint of floral, citrus and white pepper.
Bright and elegant, bing cherry, earthy and floral with light French oak. Soft and sumptuous. Artwork by Aldo Luongo.
20% Petite Sirah
Rich and full bodied dark fruits, earthy, all-spice and French oak. Artwork by Aldo Luongo. The most enduring single image in the paintings of Aldo Luongo is that of "The Hawk", an homage to the artist's father, Rafael Celestino Luongo.
95% Pinot Noir and 5% Chardonnay
In true Artiste style, this artwork absolutely inspired this wine of blending two very different Burgundian varietals into one classic Pinot Noir. Bright fruit, cherry, raspberries with an earthy, woodsy, butterscotch, bold pinot combined with a tropical fruit forward Chardonnay, created a perfect balance with an elegant long lasting finish. Quiet tannins will allow for a nice aging of 3-5 years.
Unworldly, the portion of whole cluster fermented Syrah exudes green herbs and spices like dill, sage, and thyme, black peppercorns and jerky, while the Tempranillo delivers a punch of black cherry/currant preserves, soy sauce, raisins, and fresh dough that lead into subtle accents of clove, salty roasted mixed nuts, raspberries, cedar, and molasses.
60% Petite Verdot
40% Cabernet Sauvignon
Smoky green herbs, flower petals and GREEN tea lift your senses. Elongated, sensual ripe raspberries and blackberries provide enough runway to sense this wine's complex potpourri.
Designed to exemplify top-shelf quality wine key features a double-hinged arm, five-turn worm and handle-integrated foil cutter - all plated in bona-fide 24-karat gold. Waiters and Artiste servers love these for opening wax topped bottles!
50% Cabernet Pfeffer
40% Touriga Nacional
Cab what? Time to get to know the other Cabernet... Pfeffer. Only an Artist would we be creative enough to blend Touriga Nacional, a full-bodied red wine from Portugal into Cabernet Pfeffer, a German varietal, and then add Zinfandel! An explosion of flavor.
This Spanish-style blend is fruit forward, soft and sumptuous with bright notes of tangy red raspberries, enhanced by green herbs, white pepper, and jasmine-like floral characteristics, followed by a mildly pleasing amount of oak.
20% Cabernet Sauvignon
This Super-Tuscan inspired blend displays aromatics of strawberries, watermelon, raspberries, and blackberries accented by delicate dried herbs, and fragrant dried floral aromas, followed by a deep and lengthy finish of dark cherries, tobacco, earth and sweet vanilin oak.
33% Cabernet Sauvignon
A blend of two family vineyards, Sangiovese from the Schipper family's Terra di Pardiso Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sunstone's 28-year-old estate vineyard, and the birthpace of Artiste, this Commemorative Release was bottled and released in 2018 and has been cellared to perfection. The label artwork, an image featured on Artiste's very first blend in 2003, is by Santa Barbara legend, James-Paul Brown, the artist that created Sunstone's "Eros".
Italian inspired with flavors of rosemary, lavender, tea and herb garden. This wine will sure to put a grin on your face! Artwork by John Bramblitt.
20% Cabernet Franc
Sourced entirely from the Sunstone's 28 year old estate vineyard, and the birthpace of Artiste, this Commemorative Release was bottled and released in 2018 and has been cellared to perfection. The artwork, an image of the famous Sunstone tasting room window, is by Santa Barbara legend, James-Paul Brown, the artist that created Sunstone's "Eros".
