LOS OLIVOS, CA: The terraced Saarloos & Sons Windmill Ranch vineyard in Ballard Canyon wraps around the brow of a hill in the emerald hues of spring, near Los Olivos, California. Embedded within the greater Santa Ynez Valley AVA, the Ballard Canyon AVA is a compact 7,700 acres (of which 550 are planted) split among roughly 17 different producers. While many things grow well in the range of microclimates the AVA offers, many believe its destiny lies with Syrah.
