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.

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
