Our Santa Ynez Valley winery tasting room offers one of the Central Coast’s most comfortable and comprehensive visitor experiences, including daily winery tours and extensive picnic facilities. Archive photos and other artifacts chart the Firestone family’s pioneering heritage, from turn-of-the-century tire innovation to the establishment of Santa Barbara County’s first estate winery in 1972. The recently remodeled tasting room features an island bar and picture windows that overlook our estate vineyards. We strive to offer an informative and welcoming atmosphere that will appeal to wine enthusiasts and novices alike. Our free daily tours guide you through the history of the winery, and through the production of fine wine from vine to glass. Tours begin at the demonstration cork tree and continue out into the estate vineyards. The winemaking process is then showcased from the crush pad to the fermentation cellar to the barrel cellar. Tours typically last between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the volume of guests and depth of questions. Tours depart daily at 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.

I went wine tasting at Firestone Vineyard and Winery with my friend who has C.P. and gets around in a power wheelchair. The atmosphere is amazing! The wine is great and we were served by the nicest girl, Dawn. She set up a special tasting area for us that was accessible for him. She was happy to give him a... More

Finally stopping for a tasting here, which is a part of the Foley family of wineries so if you're a member of one, you get free tastings and discounted bottles at all. Stand out Syrah and really nice off dry Gewürztraminer.

Being members of Firestone's wine club has certain advantages that we had not previously appreciated. On weekends they open a special lounge for club members, which is very comfortable and friendly. They invited Jack and Winston to join us, and we all had a great time; we tasted several excellent vintages, and Jack and Winston entertained the ladies!

This winery was our first stop of many. The bachelor fame is was brought us here. The tasting room was crowded (Sunday afternoon) and the wine club was pushed hard. Nice picnic area for lunch.

We were doing the Santa Ynez and Paso Robles wine country tour. Firestone happened to be our very first stop. The property is pleasant and what you expect a winery setting to be. The tasting room is nicely appointed. The large square bar and side bar allow the ability to spread out and have a more intimate tasting experience with... More

We were looking for something to do on our way between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara. We'd seen the good reviews on TripAdvisor so decided to call in. As we were booked onto the 1315 tour we took the wine sample flight first. This was really informative and great value for money. The staff treated us to a few... More

Travelling through the S.L.O. countryside, I was looking for a winery that offered not just a tasting room, but also a guided tour of the facilities, hoping to get my kid (9 y.o.) to learn something about the wine making process and maybe even interested into the way food reaches the table. What a disappointment. The highlight of the guided... More

This was our last stop in a series of wine tastings over 3 days. It was a Monday and therefore a slow day and we didn't have to fight through the crowds to get our sips in. We had an attentive server with good information who hooked us up with a winery tour that pretty good. The wines were across... More
