The Larners have a wonderful spot in the old gas station in the heart of Los Olivos. I actually remember when they sold gasoline there! Go and taste some of the finest wines the Valley has to offer and learn about wine-making from the guru of grapes and land, Mike Larner. After sipping try shopping! The shop is fabulous!

Larner Winery Tasting Room and Los Olivos General Store are a treat for all the senses! Taste some of the finest wines that the Santa Ynez Valley has to offer and the general store is packed with lovely surprises. I couldn't stop buying things! Try the 2010 Reserve Syrah if there is any left..very special.

Spent an amazing hour with Michael Larner, Owner / Winemaker in front of the General Store tasting some amazing wines. Los Olivos is as amazing place to visit in itself with shopping, food and over 40 wine tasting stops. If you go, do not miss the opportunity to stop in at Larner. The Store has some very unique items and... More

The tasting room is deceptive. It's small and attached to the general store. But don't let that deceive you. We really enjoyed our tasting here. The woman who served us (I'm blanking on her name...) was incredibly knowledgeable. She answered every single question we had. Michael Larner even came into the tasting room, and he spoke to my husband for... More

It's just ok. It was a little room. Maybe 5 people could fit at the counter. The picture of the chairs are misleading since you can't take the wine outside due to licensing. The girl seemed pleasant enough but was busy chatting with the other people next to us. Seemed like they were friends or something so she didn't spend... More

Hi Mooki x, We would love to invite you to visit us again for a hosted tasting outside! We have our tables and chairs officially set up now. When you visited with us in June, we were in the process of having our outdoor seating permitted - we apologize for the inconvenience. Panino's restaurant is right next door to us.... More

Michael Larner is not only a craftsman of Rhone wines, particularly his red blend "Elemental," but he makes a very fine Malvasia. I don't normally care for the Los Olivos scene, but this is one of the nicest tasting areas, right in the Los Olivos General Store next to the central flagpole. The store features paintings by Christina LoCascio, an... More
