It was fun seeing where Miles and Jack met Stephanie in the movie "Sideways". Enjoyed tasting the wines (except the Cab Franc, as I've never come to expect greatness from a cab franc and theirs is no different). However, I did like the Muscat. The place is worth a visit if your in the area.

This was a great winery. The guy that helped us (can't remember what they're called) was extremely knowledgable and helpful. His recommendations were spot on! I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Supercool winery, it has a very peculiar hype. Their dessert wines are fabulous, and we got the chance to buy a perfect-awesome-wonderful magnum bottle of a 1999 Pinot de Noir sparkling wine they had just disgorged (they made only 40 bottles). In addition to wines they also have gourmet chocolates and some other things. It's a pity that the person... More

Went wine tasting and sat out on the patio (had my dog with me). It was extremely hot this day so I wish they had 'misters'. Server was nice. They had a water bowl for my dog on the patio. If it was not so hot, it would have been very pleasant. Worth a visit

This was our second stop on a recent wine tasting trip. Very nice, large patio that's dog friendly. Beautiful views and helpful staff.

If you like a sweet wine every once in a while, Kalyra has a great selection. My fiance and I have yet to try one we didn't like so it was an easy decision to join the Dessert Only wine club.

This was our 2nd visit to this winery having visited in 2011. Very enjoyable-"our winetender" was very informative about each wine and recommended the type of meals that would go well with each wine. We were so impressed we decided to join their wine club! Kalyra was one of the locations featured in Sideways the movie. Highly recommend a tasting... More

If you're visiting Santa Ynez wineries (vs. hopping around tasting rooms in Solvang) this property is a must see. Kalyra offers a large variety of wines - everyone in your party is bound to find something. Their wine club is reasonably priced, and the staff are friendly. My favorite part about this vineyard is the large front porch at the... More

This was my favorite of the 4 winery locations we stopped at with the Grapeline shuttle. we asked for it specifically, due to our love of dessert and sweeter white wines. very friendly, beautiful setting, and they love dogs, which is a huge plus in my book!
