BUELLTON, Calif. - It's going to be a great summer in Buellton when a highly anticipated Hitching Post Wines tasting room opens in the small Santa Ynez Valley city.
Frank Ostini, Owner and Chef of the 'Hitching Post 2' in Buellton, said he acquired the lease for 420 East Highway 246. The tasting room will open at this location in July 2018.
Because the tasting room will open adjacent to the 'Hitching Post 2' restaurant, Ostini is working on developing a take-out/delivery concept to offer with a limited lunch menu at the new Hitching Post Wines tasting room.
"Buellton has been our home base for Hitching Post Wines since 1986, and we are thrilled to now have a location that can focus on wine tasting and retail sales in the center of Santa Barbara Wine Country," said Ostini.
Ostini and winemaker Gray Hartley first made wine in 1979. The 'Hitching Post' brand was born in 1984.
"In this new location we are excited to feature many of our rare single-vineyard bottlings and special older vintages of Hitching Post Wines," said Hartley.
