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.

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

Dovecote was the most amazing venue! I wanted a simple and classic event and that is exactly what they delivered. The owners and staff truly care about making the event as stress-free and seamless as possible. Guests enjoyed the picturesque landscape and for me that meant I could go very light on decor and flowers which saved me a lot. The venue is only 15 mins away from Solvang but it feels like you're hours away from civilization. Even the vendors commented on how great the venue is and I expect they see dozens of these a year.Sent on 05/28/2018
To top it off, we stayed in the Casita on-site for 2 nights and it came well stocked with everything we needed to wind down and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
A more beautiful wedding than we could have imagined! Thank you so much for everything!
