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.

Firestone is no longer one of the better wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley. They used to have an excellent Merlot and usually a pretty good Cabernet Sauvignon. Not any more in my opinion. On this last visit, the only wine that we thought was good was the 2014 Reisling, which was on sale for $10.50 a bottle. My wife... More

Stopped here 10 yrs ago and wanted to see it again. The pourer was fancy on that he showed off the wine's color by pouring wine in the glass, turned the glass sideways on the bar and rolled it down the bar toward you and back again. Friendly guy. No crackers for palate cleansing. Beautiful peonies in the garden area

Was loosely familiar w this label so thought we'd stop by. Of the 8 wineries we visited this was the only one where the price matched the wine quality. Most offer ok wines at very high prices. After a good flight of reds and an enjoyable tasting w their staff I bought a half case of 2012 Syrah on sale... More

The driveway to the complex is through a working vineyard. You arrive at a very large open complex which houses a large reception building with several smaller buildings &... More

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
