This winery is a little off the beaten track, but well worth finding. The tasting room has windows into the actual winery and is a very pleasant room. The staff person was very friendly and informative. The wine that we liked and bought several bottles of was the Viognier, a variety not so well known, but can be excellent as... More

We have enjoyed Cambria's wines for years, especially their chardonnay (the fact that their address is on Chardonnay Lane should be a clue about their signature wines), but never managed to make it up the hill. Today we were at Ken Volk (absolutely not to be missed) and decided, what the heck, we're in the neighborhood. It was a wonderful... More

The Service: Wonderful~ We went on Thursday, no crowd at all. We had 110% attention from the staff... like a private tasting event! She is super knowledgeable about wine and very informative tasting lesson too. The Tasting Room: The tasting room has beautiful view. There is small outdoor patio seating area with nice furniture. Inside the tasting room, there are... More

While I think the Cambria wines are very nice, I must admit that one of the things I look forward to when tasting wines at a winery/vineyard/tasting room is social engagement. This can be with other visitors or, more often than not, with the host/hostess. This was definitely lacking during our visit. For the most part the pours were surgical,... More

Santa Ynez wineries can be hit or miss. The proximity to LA, the increasing amount of wineries opening because someone has always had a dream of owning one......it all leads to a number of places that are more tourist trap than quality winery. Cambria falls somewhere between.....It used to be family owned and that same family now runs it for... More

The view alone is worth it but the wines are outstanding! A lovely tasting room and fun staff! Sit outside and relax among the vines

Definately worth the drive. We traveled North on the Foxen Canyon Trail (from Santa Barbara 101/154), traversing over rolling blonde hills, laden with Oak trees, and rarely did we see a glimpse of another person, or a home for miles. Vineyards were on the side of mountains, in wash areas, above ridgelines, this region made the most of the land.... More

We stopped here on a recent winery tour trip because we enjoy their Chardonnay wine labeled "Katherine's Vineyard". To our surprise, after we sampled it we compared it to their other wines, and those were even better! Their Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir are outstanding! Long story short, good wines, you can get 2 for 1 tasting coupons at the... More

I admit it. I enjoy wine. And I enjoy knowing some of the stories behind them as well as the wineries. Cambria is a family owned winery that makes some incredible Chardonnays and Reds. Their signature entry Chardonnay is "Katherine's Vineyard" while their entry Pinot is "Julia's". It turns out the Chardonnay is named after the owner's blonde daughter Katherine... More

We missed the turn the first time and had to come back. Sat outside as it was a nice day although we had a view of the parking lot. The girls were pleasant but I wouldn't say overly friendly or informative. It was nice and their wine was ok. Nicely decorated tasting room. Glad we stopped by but wasn't overly... More
