The Barn at Gainey is perfect for couples who want rustic-chic elegance set against the pastoral loveliness of rolling hills, a creek, and live oaks. Built in the 1890’s, The Barn is located on the Gainey Ranch about a half-mile drive from the winery. This site offers a distinctive setting that allows you to use multiple spaces with everything from a sweeping meadow, to the shade of the live oaks, to the rural charm inside the barn. The Barn is an enchanting site unlike any other property in the Santa Ynez Valley.
