This label got its name from the estates proximity to the Santa Maria Bench. The loose fertile soil along the bank of the Sisquoc River creates unique flavors that are brought out with barrel aging. Enjoy a tasting flight for $15 or a reserve flight for $20. Outside food and pets on a leash are welcome in patio areas. If you enjoyed the wine at this location, check out Riverbench Tasting Room in Santa Barbara's Funk Zone.
