Featured Retailer: Summerland Winery

The Grapeseed Company products can be found at many fabulous retailers around the world, from top rated spas to wineries, boutiques and larger chains. We appreciate all of our wholesale partners and want to share a little bit about who they are and what they do with all of you! Every month we will select a retailer to feature and share a glimpse into what makes their business unique.

This month we're proudly featuring Summerland Winery & Boutique.  We sat down with their Tasting Room manager to learn more about this adorable seaside winery & retail boutique.   
 1. Tell us a bit about your business and wines.. 
Summerland Winery is a boutique winery dedicated to the production of fine wines from the Central Coast of California. Nebil “Bilo” Zarif founded Summerland Winery in 2002 with the goal of producing premium wines from expressive vineyard sources spanning from Santa Barbara to Monterey. Since then, the winery has built a name synonymous with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The 14+ different varietals from 9 renowned vineyards allow the Central Coast and Single Vineyard Collections to showcase their excellent fruit character combined with strong regional character. 
2. What makes your tasting room unique/different?    
The winery’s tasting room is located in Summerland’s charming seaside setting, just 10 minutes south of Santa Barbara. It is probably one of the few tasting rooms where you can walk to the beach after a tasting! We have a wonderful array of logo'd merchandise, hats, Grapeseed Company products (!), wine accessories, gourmet foods and local art to purchase in our boutique.  Another quality that makes us unique is that we're easy to get to-- no long drives to the vineyards, we are easily accessible from the 101, and there's plenty of parking.  We make enjoying Central Coast wines easy!

3. What is your best selling Grapeseed product? 
The Organic Wine Bar soaps! They work as a great gift for wine lovers!!

4.  What is your personal favorite Grapeseed product?  

The Surf Scrub. The scent is absolutely scrumptious!

5. How have you taken initiative to become a greener business? 
At the Tasting Room, we pride ourselves in our efforts to recycle nearly everything!  We only use recycled paper and packaging products and all of our cleaning supplies are safe for the environment.  We supply our club members with re-usable wine totes so that we aren't using paper bags every time a wine purchase is made. We also try and carry merchandise that is from companies who also practice "green" initiatives.

If you're driving South from Santa Barbara, you'll pass right by Summerland; we highly recommend a visit to this adorable town and tasting room to try some of their amazing wines!
