He farms a 50 acre estate vineyard that surrounds his winery which primarily contributes to: Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, Estate Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir, Estate Santa Rita Hills Sauvignon Blanc, and a Single Block Designated Pinot called ‘The Ocean’s Ghost’. Babcock’s other Single Block Designated wines are sourced from the best Santa Barbara has to offer including the famed vineyards “Radian” and “Rita’s Crown”.
