Ross and Lyn Dee Rankin

Now open for tastings Thursday – Monday 12-5pm. Otherwise call for an appointment. 

Imagine Wine is a true boutique winery producing aromatic and delicious wines in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, near Santa Barbara, California. Our wines are hand crafted by our winemaker, Ross Jay Rankin & aged in barrels to enhance flavors and a smooth finish. Ross entered the industry in the late 1990’s and produced in a facility affectionately known by its many excellent winemakers as the “Lompoc Wine Ghetto.” After participating as one of the first winemakers to join Terravant, in Buellton, Ross now crafts his wine at the Industrial Wine Works. Ross sources extraordinary grapes from the renowned vineyards of the California central coast. His signature Paradise Mountain Syrah is made exclusively from the highly sought after grapes of a unique vineyard in the eastern hills of Santa Barbara County and aged for many years in barrels. Begun in 2004, Imagine Wine now has a complement of rich, limited production wines to suit any wine lovers’ tastes. Our Tasting Room is on Industrial Way, where our followers may discuss winemaking (or the world’s dilemmas) with Ross or his wife, LynDee, over sips of Imagine Wine.

Imagine sharing a little (maybe more than a little) wine with your friends and deciding to create a winery…we did and we love it!
