Helix Tasting Room was opened in 2016 by Kalyra Winery. Kalyra has been producing wine since 2002 in Santa Ynez, CA and the idea for the Helix Tasting Room was to showcase Kalyra's Sparkling and Dessert wines, as well as Kalyra's newest wine product "239 wine". Kalyra's Dessert wine offerings change often and include our very famous Orange Muscat, Black Muscat, IZE T and Rare Tawny.
Mike Brown, owner and winemaker is Australian born and has a long history of producing award winning dessert wines. The DNA Helix wine glass logo represents 239's evolutionary wine...a fortified wine that is 23.9% alcohol designed to be used to elevate wine cocktail mixology to a new level. For cocktail connoisseurs this 239 wine opens up a plethora of new recipes and for restaurants that don't have a liquor license, 239 allows for the addition of wine cocktails to the menu.
Special events happen throughout the year including Vintage & Vino; an outdoor vintage marketplace featuring wine specials, artisans, vintage barware, vintage housewares and clothing. Vintage & Vino is a fun and unique shopping experience that compliments the Helix Tasting Room retail shop that is housed inside a 1956 Roadliner vintage trailer on the property. The vintage trailer sells lots of unique vintage barware, clothing, novelties and surprise gift ideas for that hard to shop for person.
The Helix Speakeasy Club offers a no committment wine club for those who wish to gather and enjoy the experience of wine drinking with friends.
