My friends and I were walking around the Funk Zone trying to decide where to go, their sign said open so we walked in to check it out. One of the employees yelled at us that they were closed and kept repeating "we're closed" and was completely rude to us before we even had a chance to ask any questions.... More

Good mix of whites and reds on a 10 dollar tasting. Locate in funk town of SB, Oreana has a great outside lot for friends and family to enjoy a quick six of California grown vino.

Could not decide which winery to try in the "Funk Zone", and randomly chose Oreana. The server was friendly and described each wine she presented. The cost was $10 for 6 tastings. We relaxed after a long drive and sightseeing. It was a great end of day experience in busy Santa Barbara.

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
