I always buy bottles after wine tasting here. I'm not a wine aficionado and I can't say why I like the wine I've tried, only that they do have wines I usually don't even drink (like Chardonnays). They always serve something new too, and the servers are knowledgeable. They won't refund your tasting fee though if you do buy a... More

We loved the red wine selection and the cheese plate was fantastic. Value was great because we were allowed to go to their sister winery next door for 1/2 the cost of the tasting and allowed to keep the crystal glasses from both tasting rooms.

This tasting room gives you a choice of 3 different flights if tasting, reds, whites or a mix. We choice the reds of course,... Loving Pinot noir from this region. We enjoyed the County Pinot Noir and bought two bottles fir dinner that evening at The Lark, right across the street.

This is a nice tasting room. Has outdoor seating and is dog friendly. The wines are priced so that they can easily be everyday drinking wines. Nice selection and large tasting menu for the price. You even get to keep the glass. Note that there's free parking right across the street from the tasting room.

Wine tasting room is on Anacapa where you can find a handful of other wine tasting rooms. 10 dollars for the wine tasting (mix of reds and whites). There are other wines that are not included in the tasting available for purchase. I bought a Pinot Noir (very good) only 17 dollars. You can also buy food items like chocolate,... More

Of 5 places we tasted wines in Santa Barbara, SB Winery was by far the best. Sauvignon Blanc excelled.

We enjoyed visiting with other people while we tasted 6 different wines. Poor staff is friendly. Our motel offered us a discount coupon.

We enjoyed the funk zone, winery tasting rooms during Valentine's weekend. I've always worried about drinking and driving especially while wine tasting. Well, while in Santa Barbara you can have your wine and drink it too. We walked 2 blocks from our hotel and enjoyed an afternoon at Area 5.1 and Santa Barbara Winery tasting rooms. You literally can enjoy... More

The Santa Barbara Winery is one of the oldest wineries in the area. The staff were very gracious at their downtown tasting room. We enjoyed visiting with the other patrons while we tasted some delicious Santa Barbara wines.

This winery tasting room is wonderful. For 10$ you get 8 different wines to taste. You can also order a cheese plate to go with your wine. They also had an olive oil and vinegar tasting there too and they were amazing.
