Tyler is dedicated to producing wines of delicacy and balance, where structure and nuance are favored above all else. The focus is exclusively on exceptional vineyard sites throughout the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley within Santa Barbara County. Within these two appellations, the unique combination of marine-based soils, transverse ranges and valleys, and cool ocean influence make this a truly wonderful place for growing pinot noir and chardonnay. Proprietor and winemaker Justin Willett's inspiration has come from local winemakers and European producers such as Roulot, Bonneau du Martray, Dujac, Bachelet and Rousseau. Great effort has been made not only to seek out vineyards of pedigree, but also to seek out vines with age, and Tyler now works with a number of the oldest vineyard blocks in the County. Justin collaborates closely with each of his growers and practises focused, minimal handling of fruit and wine.
