Dovecote Ranch rests on 250 breathtaking acres of pasture, vineyard, and pond in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country. Family owned and operated, we farm 42 acres of Rhone varietal grapes and hold on to a small amount to make just a couple hundred cases of wine per year.
In addition to our ceremony and event spaces by our one-acre pond, we offer a stunning 4 bedroom Hacienda to host the wedding party's family or a rehearsal dinner on our veranda overlooking the Figueroa Mountains. For the couple to steal away on their wedding night, we offer a 1 bedroom romantic Casita with a private outdoor garden patio.
To preserve the natural beauty of our home as well as our privacy, we host less than 10 events per year. Because we're selective about the events we host, we go out of our way to ensure these events are perfectly tailored to create unforgettable memories. Staff is always on site to ensure the evening is stress free and fun for all attendees. We also connect our clients with the most talented and passionate vendors in the county.
Come by for a tour (and bring a picnic!) to experience the energy and tranquility of our ranch and vineyard in person.

From the moment we stepped onto the grass at Dovecote it stood out to us a special place. Unlike a lot of other places we viewed, you can be more in touch with the land and nature and it felt like the place we should get married. Working with Tamara and the team at Dovecote for just about a year, we were able to create the perfect day for our wedding. They were easy to work with and it was amazing to have such a open palette to imagine with. We were able to bring in some really great vendors like a BBQ smoker and a gelato cart and we had our 6 person band on some truck beds, which all made the place feel more magical and also feel like us as a couple. Along with having a great venue space, there are also two rental houses on the property that were key to our decision in choosing Dovecote. We hosted both our rehearsal dinner and day after brunch at the larger house, which serves up a gorgeous view of the valley. The smaller house was picturesque for getting ready in the day of the wedding and also having as a sweetheart suite that evening. From start to finish, Dovecote was the perfect backdrop for our nuptials. We're so excited to be able to go back in the future and experience their tasting room as a married couple!Sent on 10/04/2019

Dreamy place, awesome people
We had our small ceremony in the backyard of the Hacienda at Dovecote, and were BLOWN AWAY by how insanely beautiful the property and views are. Renting the house to stay there with family and friends was the cherry on top to our weekend. Our reception at the pond was unforgettable, and I love the bar they built at the far end - so cool!Sent on 08/31/2019

The most gorgeous venue in Los Alamos!
What is there not to say about Dovecote Vineyard?! My original venue was evacuated the day before my wedding due to the Woosley Fire. I had absolutely no idea how or where I was going to find a place to move my 200 guest wedding. Thats when Dovecote Vineyard so graciously and willingly opened their venue for us (literally 24 hours before). From literally opening their more personal house on the property for us to get ready in, to making sure we had heat lamps, to letting us use all of their farm tables for our reception area- they went above and beyond what they had to do for us. The day before my wedding they were not only quickly getting the property ready for my wedding but also trying to help me find other vendors that I needed last minute. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful with a mixture of trees, meadows, hills and vineyards. You would of never known this wedding was thrown together in 24 hours (per what every guest stated). The service and the way they opened their arms to us, I couldn't thank or recommend them enough. I loved this venue more than my original and am so happy that I had my wedding day there!Sent on 01/08/2019
