The setting for Rusack is as unique as the wines. Entered via a winding drive through the vineyards, the Canyon Terrace features an inviting redwood deck constructed around four beautiful ancient oaks.
Our beautiful Canyon Terrace Deck, Garden and Lounge offers comfortable, conversation-style seating, with table service offering wine by the glass, bottle, and a vast selection of wine samples our guests can choose from. Charcuterie plates are also available for purchase, and we ask that you please order 24 hours in advance. No outside food at this time please. Each seating is 90-minutes.
Our Canyon Terrace is open Thursday - Monday from 11am-5pm by appointment only.
Rusack is fronted by a redwood deck that overlooks the estate vineyards, with the rolling oak-studded hills providing a picture-perfect backdrop.
Come relax on the deck under a canopy of ancient oaks and enjoy the view while you sip our award-winning handcrafted wines.
In addition to keeping a supply of crisp white wines chilled and red wines ready for your tasting pleasure, we have a sampling of cheeses and crackers available for sale.
We are dog friendly! We ask that your dog remains on a leash during your visit and stays on the patio in your company.
We regret that we are not always able to accommodate large groups. If you are interested in bringing a group of six or more, please call ahead for reservations.
Unfortunately, we do not have the appropriate facilities, nor the staff, to support private events, including weddings. Should you wish to have an event at a winery here in the valley, the Santa Barbara County Vintner’s Association may be able to assist you.
