Flying Goat Cellars
Flying Goat Cellars is a study in contrasts. A humorous name and a serious lineup of wines. A startup garagiste mode and 35+ years of winemaking experience. A caricature of a leaping goat on a premium wine bottle. A mission of merriment and a dedicated commitment to professionalism.The result is exactly what owner/winemaker Norman Yost set out to do when he established Flying Goat Cellars in 2000.
Flying Goat Cellars produces about 2,500 cases a year and includes three labels: Flying Goat, Goat Bubbles and YNOT. Flying Goat focuses on vineyard designated Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris. Goat Bubbles offers five vineyard designated sparkling wines: Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Crémant and Brut Cuvée, all made in the traditional méthode champenoise with the secondary fermentation in the bottle. YNOT is Pinot Noir blended from the finest of Santa Barbara County vineyards.
