Went to this winery back in May and fell in love with it. The outdoor setting is spectacular with its fountains, oak trees, meandering paths. We also fell in love with their wines. They are knowledgeable and friendly. The tasting fee is $10.00 and we enjoyed all of them from the Rose to the desert wine. The reds in-between were... More

I was on a mission to find wineries where you get to keep the glass and this is one of them. Plus,the prices were some of the most reasonable in the area. The quality of the wine is excellent, I bought the Pinot and the rose(not a sweet one, but fruity). The outside deck is an excellent place to bring... More

Whenever I have friends visiting, I usually take them here. It's a good place to go, if you want to unwind, and enjoy wine-tasting a little. You can sit outside, relax and take in the hillside/vineyard views while sipping wine, much better than just standing around a crowded counter waiting to be served!! Wine-tasting itself is $12 per person, up... More

We have visited this winery many times over the years and are never disappointed. It is a beautiful setting with excellent staff and lovely,well priced wine. They have really improved their wine over the years with their Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Botrytis Semillon and Syrah being my favourites. About three years ago they started making wine from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and... More

When we visit Santa Barbara wine country Rusack Vineyards is always on our itinerary. It has not disappointed us, very good wine and the setting is one of the best in the area. I would suggest taking a lunch and sitting on their patio and enjoying the landscape. It is a bit out of the way but definitely worth the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Rusack's Winery. Pack a lunch to enjoy under the trees on their patio or try one of their snack plates. You will not be disappointed with the experience.

Rusack Vineyard is a bit out of the way for those content with visiting vineyards right on Highway 101, but it is well worth the visit. It is a magnificent setting for a picnic and their wines are wonderful. We are particularly fond of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It was a pleasure to have friendly and attentive service. By...

This place in Ballard Canyon is a real find. Bring a picnic lunch and sit on the patio, the atmosphere and views are beautiful and relaxing. The wines are delightful, especially the pinot noir and chardonnay. This is one of my favorite places to be with my husband and/or friends!

The employee who poured our tastings was very friendly and knowledgeable. He recommended some other wineries to us. It was nice that we got to keep the wine glasses from the tastings. Rusack felt very comfortable and down to earth, not as showy as some of the other ones we visited.

Here is an example of a little winery with big wines! The winery is nestled on a hilltop with a wonderful courtyard to sit under the trees and sample their wines.
