In 2008 Hartley and Ostini moved their winemaking operations from Santa Lagos Map Maria to Terravant Wine Company, a custom winemaking facility in Buellton. Although tastings of Hitching Post Lagos Map wines are offered at Terravant’s new visitor center, wine aficionados continue to flock to the ever-popular Hitching Post II, where the chef-winemaker blends his culinary and vinous creations.
OF SPECIAL NOTE: Tastings are held in one of the most popular restaurants in the Santa Ynez Valley. Wines are made by chef-owner to complement menu. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS: Ostrich Land (33-acre ostrich farm); Elverh0j Museum of History and Art (exhibits on Danish community in Solvang); Windhaven Glider Rides; historic Mission Santa Ines. LAFOND WINERY & VINEYARDS Few wineries can claim roots as deep in Santa Barbara County soil as Lafond Winery & Vineyards.
