Reader Annie let me know that The Vineyard House Restaurant at 3631 Sagunto Street in Santa Ynez closed on March 10th.
The Simas Corporation, owners of The Santa Ynez Inn is planning a remodel/update of the existing structure and hopes to have something in place in a year or so.
The operators of the Vineyard House left the property after a large gathering of locals and regulars- always a good thing to have your friends to wish you well on your retirement!
The Coach House will continue to host weddings and other upscale gatherings all summer long- with some small improvements planned alongside the renovations at the Vineyard House property.
Sadly the owners of the Vineyard House took every opportunity to create a story about their leaving the property- making it seem like Simas was a villain. No one was kicked out, no one wanted to purchase their recipes and continue the restaurant- and they are now free to re-open anywhere in the Valley should they desire to….
Just so you know, no one puts 20 years of their life into a business to walk away with nothing at the end.. The Vineyard House was never offered a new lease of any kind – there was no story created by the restaurant owners as you say- Sima wanted the property back and now it sits empty- they haven’t a clue…end of story
