I loved the wine here and the people helping with tasting were great. I had read a review that it was cozy and comfy so we went here to relax while waiting for dinner reservations. Unfortunately they've remodeled since the photos here and it's not as relaxing. The use artist's stools and old school desks which look great but aren't... More

The pinot noir was the best I have ever had. Buy a bottle. I didn't and now they don't have it on their website:(. Great atmosphere, and staff. It is a must stop along the way!

My son and daughter in law took me for a night of wine tasting. The wine was fantastic, and the atmosphere fun without being rowdy.

Located in an old dive shop, this is one of the neatest tasting rooms in Santa Barbara. They make both whites and reds although they usually sell out of the whites so beware. Must be because they are so good. They also make a sparkling red wine called Fizz but it too sells out quickly. The staff is always friendly... More

This winery had good wine, but the best part about it was the old-school California feel that the environment in Municipal brings. It has unique decor and a friendly staff. The wine wasn't great but it was good and worth a visit.

My husband and I shared a tasting. The wine was ok...nothing stood out for either of us. Asked to try The Fizz but they were out. Nice atmosphere to sit and relax. We ordered their cheese plate...tasted old...we were starving and ate it anyway:)

You can lose yourself in this winery very quickly. My girlfriend at the time (now wife) and I were recommended this place by a bar tender at The Pub as a good spot to side and enjoy a bottle(s) of wine. Be warned no food at this place, only fantastic reds (and whites I'm sure). But they let you bring... More

Very cool, hip place – lots of interesting antiques incorporated in, including old file cabinets they store the wine glasses in, antique cash register, and a massive calculator that would definitely not fit in your purse. Wonderful wines. Tasting was $10 for 5 tastes. They are also one of the only tasting rooms to have cheese available (gotta love wine... More
