The building itself is nothing special. The small tasting room is behind the loading dock. The server was not very cordial, she was just going through the motions. The basic tasting only has 2 varietals - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with several of each. Most tasting rooms offer a full compliment of the vineyard's varietals. This experience did not showcase...

This winery is a little off the beaten path, but has a good array of wines to taste and genuine hosts. We shared a standard tasting for $10, tasting chardonnay and pinot noir vintages. The host was kind enough to let us try a few extra wines to help us decide which bottles we would like to purchase. If you... More

Stopped by here on a recent visit to Santa Maria. We had a great time trying all their wines. Each wine was explained in detail, and the presenter was extremely knowledgeable of all their products. My friends signed up for the wine club!

Cambria has always been my favorite Chardonnay so it goes without saying when I got the chance to be in the area it was first on my list. I was not disappointed! We learned so much about the wine making, the history of the area and the region of wine growing. They recommended other vineyards to visit and where to... More

We had a very pleasant tasting at Cambria Winery. The wines on the tasting list were quite good and the staff highlighted some comparisons that could be made across the wines. A question on our part led to an off-list wine being served. The servers were very friendly and engaged. All in all, we had a great time and would... More

My favorite wine maker of the region. The wine was so good I joined the club. A better selection there than in the markets

The setting at Cambria's Winery and Tasting Room is surrounded by vineyards and has some wonderful foothill views. There is also a spacious south facing deck area with lots of tables where you could consider extending your tasting room experience by enjoying one of their wines on the sunny deck. The Bien Nacido plateau, origin of their Estate grown Chardonnays... More

Friendly & knowledgable staff, wine club with exclusive smaller lots, ALL estate grapes. Location is short jaunt off 101 @ Beteravia to start your tour through Santa Maria. We joined in August & this is our 2nd visit - we really like the Bench Break 2011 chardonnay about $25 for members. Good pintos too, this whole area is good for... More

We stopped here on a whim on a Friday afternoon and had a wonderful time. The woman pouring our tastes was very friendly and knowledgable, and she made us feel very comfortable. We enjoyed almost everything we tasted, and left with two bottles--a Chardonnay and a Pinot. I would love to come back with my mom--I think she'd enjoy it,... More

If you are doing the Foxen Wine Trail, do yourself a favor and put Cambria Winery & Vinyards on your itinerary. Infact, do yourself one better and plan to leave with some Pinot. I'm told that they have Pinot at the tasting room that you cannot find at retail so ask for it!
