We have been here a few times over the years. The tasting is 6 for $10 and you can keep the glass which is still the best stem less glassware you can get at a tasting room. I'm not usually a fan of the Sylvaner but this year I am and I bought three bottles to take home. I also... More

This was a bit off the beaten track. Very nice picnic area. There were many families out there that had picnics. We decided to sit outside. It was a bit chilly but thought we would enjoy the outdoors. Wine was ok. Staff was ok. I wouldn't say overly friendly but pleasant.

We have enjoyed stopping here for years while driving the Foxen Canyon area. We used to be wine club members but had to cut back. We always enjoy the beautiful grounds and building that appears to be an old barn. Nice people serving and reasonable prices.

It is on the Foxen Wine trail. We drove the trail two days in a row to catch the light at different times.. The... More

This was a stop we made because the tasting included the souvenir glasses and we had a 2 for 1 coupon. You drive down a long dirt road past cattle and the tasting room looks like a building from the Old West. It is a small room and on a busy Saturday the servers were going back and forth helping...

Rancho Sisquoc Winery is a location where, if you are so inclined, you might consider dressing for the occasion in your western ware because this place is a Rancher’s Ranch! 37,000 acres of land, a cattle ranch with a mere 300 acres of grape vines. When you pull into the property you see a number of homes that immediately make... More

Really enjoyed the drive out (very pretty, about 30 min northeast, so it's good as the first stop of the day) but didn't really like the wines in comparison to the other wines in the area. Also really enjoyed talking with the staff and hearing the history of the property (it's massive) and the family (The Flood family, it's an... More

We like going here even though it is at the end of no where. The wines have been consistently very good over the years. Sometimes you can find a special wine there.

Great Service! Great wine! A bit of a drive into the country side but well worth it. Excellent atmosphere.
