Strange Family Vineyards is located in the Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County.
For hundreds of years, the sandy loom soil on level blocks of land have captured the minerals that flow down from the green hills. One of the only two east-west valleys in California, the fog rolls off the Pacific Ocean in the evening and rolls back out during the day. The cool nights and early mornings combined with the warm days has transformed Santa Rita Hills into one of the finest regions in the world for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The soil and distinct climate give the grapes a taste and smell only found in the Santa Rita Hills.
Strange Family Vineyards' commitment to sustainable organic farming and investment in a careful pruning process make the grapes, the starting point of every wine, exceptional.
The World's top Champagne or "Sparkling Wine" as it is called in California, use Pinot Noir or Chardonnay grapes, or a combination of both. Their Santa Rita Hills winery and vineyard's unique proximity to the ocean creates variations in temperature which provide an opportunity to pick the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at perfect PH and sugar levels enabling us to create the finest sparkling wine grapes.
This package includes: Two-for-one tasting at the Malibu Lumber Yard Tasting Room and 2 bottles of 2018 Pinot Noir.

This package includes an Alexis Smart flower remedies custom blend consultation along with two custom remedies.
Flower remedy therapy can be used for deep healing when you are out of balance, but you don't need to be unhealthy or depressed to benefit from flower remedies. Many clients are happy and healthy and use flower remedies as a tool to manifest their goals. Just as doing yoga, meditating and eating a healthy diet can enrich your life, taking flower remedies can be used to raise your vibration and help maintain positivity.
During your flower remedy consultation you will talk about your personality (have you always been shy, or are you a perfectionist, a dreamer, etc.), as this will be the foundation of your formula. You will also discuss your goals, your relationships, recent injuries or traumas, and patterns or habits you may be stuck in that could be having a destructive effect in your life.
You can also address healing the past. Many people have a lot of pain left over from childhood and, believing there is not much to be done to change the past, do their best to grow around it. Alexis has found the flower remedies to be one of the most effective methods to assist healing past traumas and grief. This process will happen gently and gradually. You will be a participant in the session, choosing remedies with Alexis and finding that you have the freedom to heal.
