Description: San Sebastian Winery, founded in 1996 is located at 157 King Street, St...
San Sebastian Winery, founded in 1996 is located at 157 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway buildings located just a few blocks from historic downtown. According to historians, this area is the birthplace of American wine, dating back to 1562. Today, San Sebastian ranks as one of Florida's premium wineries, and remains a pioneer in the development of table, sparkling and dessert wines from hybrid and muscadine grapes. Vintage-dated varietals from hybrids such as Stover and Blanc Du Bois are produced and marketed along with blended and sparkling wines from native Muscadine grapes. Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines are also produced by and sold under the San Sebastian brand. Together, these labels have won many awards for excellence in winemaking, over 300 so far with more to come each season. Every year more than 100,000 people are expected to visit the winery’s extensive tasting room and wine shop. San Sebastian Winery has an overall production of over 80,000 cases, (that’s over 960,000 bottles!). San Sebastian wines are sold at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida. “The Cellar Upstairs” Wine, Jazz & Blues Bar, open weekends, is located on the rooftop of the Winery building and is a best kept secret with locals. Open on weekends, featuring incredible live music from a wide range of talented local and regional Bands. Relax to the music and enjoy the tremendous views overlooking the St. Augustine skyline while enjoying a glass of San Sebastian Wine and light appetizers.

One of the many stops on the Red Train tour. Friendly staff, clean site, and educational tour with tastings of many wines. We did purchase some of the products available but it was not required. I recommend the cream sherry, not too sweet.

As Clermont residents and Lakeridge Winery Winos, my husband and I had to check out San Sebastian winery. This is a great little visit and we were happy to have a tasting! If you have a little time to kill you should definitely come here!

Wish we had been in town for the music and rooftop seating, but the tour was nice - the guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The wines don't compare to California in quality, but interesting and tasty enough.

This tour didn't flow as well as others that I have been on, that is the main reason for the star level not being higher. The wines were delicious that we sampled. The samples are free. The tour is self guided while going around for samples. No one mentioned the history or the process for wine making. Some samples were... More

If you go to St. Augustine and are a wine lover, go to this place. Really enjoyed the tour given by our tour guide, Paula. It's free and at the end of the tour they have a wine tasting of several of their wines. Enjoyed it so much we bought a bottle of their Rosa for my high school reunion.

Uninteresting, slow, speak too much, stupid movie, nothing to see and, last but not least, horrible and expensive bad wine. Do something else instead !
