Different. It was like this little shack on the side of the road. Dirt parking lot. The doors were open so unfortunately, it was December so it was cold. Bathroom is a porta potty. The staff was very nice and informative. 'Tasting Room' was small as it was like a shack. What was strange is that they had a new... More

Went as a fairly large group and all enjoyed the 2 for 1 tastings at the wine shack. This is a smaller area but does have picnic tables outside with a beautiful view.

Very scenic drive along the Foxen Canyon Road to get to the Foxen Vineyard wine tasting room. Average wines except for a very good Pinot Noir that was a little bit pricey at $62. Foxen also has a shack further along the road where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, etc. are served. $10 tasting fee. Very good service. We settled on the... More

Foxen Vineyard has exceptional wine, and the tasting room is very nice, especially the outdoors area.

This was the only place we visited during our trip where we didn't buy a bottle of wine. That should say it all. Maybe we came during the wrong time... Our server was dealing with multiple groups and apologized several times during our tasting. At one point we considered just walking out in the middle of the tasting.

We had met one of the managers of Foxen Vineyard as while back at a wine event and he gave us 2 for 1 tickets to try their wine tasting so went last weekend. There are two locations along Foxen Canyon Road you can choose from. The "Shack" and right down the road their main tasting room. The shack was... More

Was wine tasting with a friend and this was the 3rd stiop on our list. The wines were decent, but the standout was definitely their GSM. Full-bodied with hints of cherry and allspice, I bought 2 bottles!!

After a disappointing wine tour, we made the drive all the way up to this facility. Although they have this legenday "shack" that's been in a bunch of movies, they built this newer, larger facility with a pretty nice, air-conditioned tasting room. They make a big deal about dry farming, including the landscaping, which is nothing much to look at... More

Foxen Vineyard was a very unique, interesting and favorite stop on our Santa Barbara area wine trail. We don’t even remember when this happened, but at some point we learned that there are two locations for Foxen Vineyard. It was a bit confusing, because we weren't sure which location was expecting us. Eich! Anyway, we just drove and picked one... More

Great wines! You have to check out the little place. It may look like a shed but don't pass it by. Lots of cool memorabliia and very friendly staff.
