Kinton is located in Santa Barbara County, one of the best places in on earth for Syrah. Geographically, Santa Barbara is defined by two rows of mountains – the Santa Ynez in the south and the San Rafaels in the north. The valley runs east and west, not north and south as is commonly found elsewhere in California. The mountains act as a funnel that ushers in fog and breezes from the nearby Pacific. Seeking to educate the industry on the different terroir of their wines, Kinton engaged Mental to create an interactive tasting guide that compares their varietals with their Australian Yangarra counterpart.
