We enjoyed learning about and sampling 6 wines - 3 white, 3 red - and a plate of cheeses, dried, fruits, nuts and crostini, sitting outside in their shady patio area. The 2012 Chardonnay was one of the best I have tasted and the Orange Muscat was particularly delicious. It was a busy Saturday afternoon but the serving staff still... More

We enjoyed time sitting outside the winery, tasting 6 wines for $10 each, but the people serving didn't seem very interested and we weren't impressed enough with any of the wines to buy anything. Still - not a bad way to pass an hour!

We dropped in to the Santa Barbara winery tasting room by chance and had a great couple of hours tasting their wines and learning about their winery. They were decent well priced wines, rather than the more expensive ones we found in Napa and Monterey, but the quality of the welcome and the knowledge of the staff made the experience... More

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.
