Santa Ynez Valley
The Santa Ynez Valley is located in Santa Barbara County on California's central coast. The valley is formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south. These create a long, east-west corridor through which Pacific ocean fogs are sucked in the morning before burning off during summer afternoons that get progressively warmer as you travel further inland. Evening temperatures plummet, creating ideal conditions for ripe fruit with fresh natural acidities. Closer to the coast is Pinot Noir territories, while the eastern end of the valley is the domain of Rhône and Bordeaux varieties.
Alecia Moore & Alison Thomson
Two Wolves is the wine project of Alecia Moore, grown on her organic-certified vineyard in Santa Barbara County in California's central coast. Alecia - better known by her stage name, Pink - bought the vineyard in 2013 and added new plantings to the Two Wolves site (planted in 2005 and 2010) in 2015. That same year, she planted another site on the property - Right Left vineyard - and recruited California-born winemaker Alison Thomson to make the wines alongside her. This was always conceived as an immersive, hands-on project from the curious, committed and intrepid Alecia – and she was only ever going to have another superwoman at her side, which she found in Alison. Australia, the country where Alicia first fell in love with wine, became the first export market for Two Wolves when CellarHand brought in a suite of wines from the 2018 vintage in mid-2022.
