In the Santa Ynez Chumash native language of Samala, the word "Kitá" means "Our Valley Oak." The Chumash believe the valley oak is a true gift from our creator, a tree that provides not only strength but also nourishment to the people. Like the valley oak, our wine highlights the gifts from Mother Earth and embodies the soil, climate, flavors and spirit of the Santa Ynez Valley.
We are a small, husband-and-wife run winery dedicated to making exceptional cool-climate Syrah, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of the finest vineyards in Santa Barbara County’s acclaimed Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Rita Hills winegrowing regions. We make our wines with care and integrity, in small lots and limited quantities, and in a style that embodies what we love about these grapes—their capacity for structure, nuance, complexity, elegance and ageing potential.
A small, family-owned and operated winery located on the Central Coast of California, Zotovich Vineyards handcrafts exceptional wine from small, closely monitored lots of grapes. Zotovich Vineyards & Winery proudly produces Estate Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Grenache.
