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.

We have been to Foxen on several occasions, and always had a great time. This visit was to the newer location. We brought wine and cheese to enjoy with our tasting. we went out back to a picnic table, eager to sit down and enjoy the wines and ambiance. Unfortunately, there was a group of 30 somethings nearby who had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed wine tasting this weekend in Santa Maria's Fox Canyon area. We stopped at Foxen Vineyard and had fun tasting several wines and chatting with the Foxen folks. They are very knowledgable of wine and helpful finding just the right one to take home. We were sorry to have missed their Harvest Festival, last week, but still enjoyed... More

We were visiting the area as part of an organized tour but asked to make a special stop at Foxen 7200 (The Shack). We were there on a Sunday after the big harvest festival so I think the crowds were a little busier than normal but we were able to find space at the bar when needed. Special tasting flight... More

We stopped at Foxen and were told there was another "down the road, the barn". I would have liked to check that out. The wines were okay, the staff was friendly but didn't have time for chit chat. They sell glasses with the tasting that are reasonable mementos. And they have fake tattoos of an old anchor, lol The grounds... More

Just a heads up they have 2 rooms one new 7600 and one old 7200. I did both and enjoyed them. The old one is the one seen in Sideways and looks like an old barn. Servers at both were very nice and knowledgeable. Well worth the drive.

Quite basic facilities with a portaloo but pleasant to sit in the sun. The staff didn't really explain what you were drinking and $10 for 5 mouthfuls of wine was quite expensive. We didn't visit any of the other wineries so it is difficult to compare them
