Get to know Riverbench Winery by Sarah Basta of She Sips

Riverbench Winery

There are so many things to gush about with Riverbench.  SIP certified (Sustainability in Practice) since 2008, they make wines inspired by the Champagnes from France. They have been producing grapes since the early seventies and have been making their own wines since 2004 in limited quantities in the Santa Maria Valley of Santa Barbara County in Southern California. 


Riverbench Winery Corkjumper Rose

We at She Sips just love a female wine maker, and Clarissa Nagy is known for her elegant and sophisticated style. We really just cant get enough of the 2014 Cork Jumper Rosé, Riverbench’s sparkling rose.  This rosé brut walks that perfect line of refreshing, crisp and dry. Their tasting room in the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara is not to be missed for your stag weekends! They also can dip your purchased bottle in glitter, giving your gifts an extra festive feel.
