Owner description: 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.

Took advantage of yoga in the vineyard along with a chocolate truffle and wine pairing, deliciously decadent. Dawn was very informative and helpful, great assets to the vineyard. This was followed up with a vineyard tour, where the tour leader ran through his script and was not very engaging. Wines and were sumptuous, scenery was divine.

It is a pretty nice tasting room. Big & open & our favorite part was looking at all the photos (history) of the family. Nice place & everyone was friendly. It was a bit rushed of a tasting & although the girl serving us was friendly, she didn't know much- but she was learning. None of it was bad bud... More

Having had a great experience here a few months ago, we decided to return to confirm our impressions. The wines were excellent, the ambiance was great (not too crowded during the winter), and - they are dog-friendly. Jack and Winston enjoyed a snack and a bowl of water, while we enjoyed the tasting. Great place!

Continuing our visits of the Foley Family properties, we next went to Firestone. Yes, it is that Firestone who was on the Bachelor. He has sold the winery properties and only concentrates on the brewery now, but there are a lot of Firestone memorabilia in the winery. We arrived, coincidentally, in time for the tour. It was about a half... More

My husband and I go wine tasting all the time with my in-laws and our most favorite winery is Firestone. We especially love the outstanding service we get from Dawn. She sure knows her wine!!! We look forward to seeing her each time we go up there! Thanks Dawn for the great experience!

Efrain was absolutely amazing. Extremely attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. This guy could have served grape juice and it would be a 5 star review with how good he was. The wine was very good, we ended up purchasing the 2011 syrah and a 2011 cab because they were exceptional. Overall great experience.

We arrived late but well before it closed. We walked in full of expectation. Yes, we are 'Sideways' fans and excited to have a CA vineyard on our holiday itinerary and maybe that makes us Philistines as far as the locals go, but - we were there to try and buy wine so such a shame we were made to...
