Firestone Vineyards Sold to Foley Wine Group


Firestone Vineyards, which brought wine making to Santa Barbara County when it was founded in 1972, has been sold to the Foley Wine Group. The company said the sale will allow the Firestone wine brand to continue to grow.

The sale includes the main Santa Ynez Valley production winery and the family brand name. The Firestone family will still run the Curtis Winery and Firestone Walker Brewing Co., which makes some fine British-style ales. The Firestone family owns the Jarhead Red and Rock Hollow wine brands. They also have a new winery in Paso Robles.

Foley Wine Group owns the Foley Estate Vineyard and Lincourt Vineyards.
