The Nielson Vineyard is historic. When planted in 1964 by Uriel Nielson, this cold-climate, benchland site became Santa Barbara’s first commercial vineyard. But history doesn’t tell the whole story. From a wine drinker’s viewpoint, Nielson is a hedonist’s delight. It produces wines that are distinct, concentrated, highly individualistic and extremely complex. The 432-acre property is located roughly 18 miles west of the Pacific Ocean at 500 to 750 feet above sea level. It has been owned by Byron since 1989. Its soils are porous and low in nutrients and its climate is cold. It’s no wonder many collectors consider Nielson to be one of Santa Barbara County’s finest vineyards.
