Go with the crowds and they are here. The wine tasting is as much the scene as the wine and Oreana has one of the best crowds of all the tasting rooms

Visited the tasting room on a Sunday afternoon and had a great experience. We enjoyed the live music playing just outside the door while sampling the wine. The wine was full bodied and flavorful. Tasting fee was waved with a two bottle purchase. The young lady who poured the wine was friendly and told us about the wine and gave... More

I walked in by myself on a Friday around 3 and took a seat at the bar while the two servers chatted with the other guests. Neither of them welcomed me or gave me any notice, so I picked up their tasting menu and proceeded to read the front and back three time over to make it clear I was... More

My husband went to this winery for a tasting fully intending to buy. The wines were average nothing stood out but we did buy 3 bottles. It was an off day (Tuesday) and we were the only people. The girl behind the counter really needed a personality transplant. She seemed more interested in her phone than trying to tell us... More

Very fun place. When they have it, try the Verdelho. They usually sell out of it really fast. If you come at the right time of year you can actually see the winemaking process. They usually have all sorts of events happening and music on the afternoons. A definite can't miss.

I did buy half a case of wine and had it shipped back home. Until I decided to do that, it felt as if the wine tasting was a mission --- get a glass, get a wine, ask for another....... I am not sure what was going on as this is not what I am used to in terms of... More

This whole section of downtown is a must for anyone on foot looking to enjoy Santa Barbara. This winery produced delicious wines, has a great tasting service, and has events all the time.

Oreana's "Happiness Project" Chardonnay with a giant yellow happy face on the bottle and $6 price tag at Trader Joe's has ruined me for pricier bottles that don't deliver. So Oreana was on my 'must-see' list when we visited Santa Barbara last weekend. What a seriously fun little place! The giant garage door was wide-open to take in the fabulous... More

Cute little place; had some board games available and an old pacman game in the corner. $10 for 6 tastes (1 white, 5 reds, which was nice, bcse we were in the mood for reds). Friendly; nice vibe.

There was some kind of 2 for 1 coupon in one of the local newspapers/newsletters/magazines, but we didn't have it and weren't offered the discount. Generous wine tasting - I was pleasantly surprised. Very cute place - would definitely go back to have a glass of wine and enjoy the cute atmosphere. Lots of little accessories you can buy. Got... More
